Inspired by the urban environment, Michael Sutton sees beauty where others see decay, and he shares his vision with us in a collection of works that appear at once familiar and surprising. Thick slabs of glass encased in rusted steel become radiant worlds. By manipulating the surfaces of the glass with paint, etching, sandblasting, and chemicals, Michael creates abstract works that call to mind satellite views of oceans, continents, lakes, and rivers on alien landscapes. And he gives these vistas an almost magical sense of depth?viewers have the sense they are looking through windows into a vast space behind the glass, not flat images on its surface. Michael thus transforms seemingly dull and ordinary glass and steel into something luminous and extraordinary, allowing us to experience unexpected beauty.


In recent years I have become more aware of time. As a result, I've moved away from all functional work and most commissions. My focus now is on my fine art work. I appreciate all of my clients from the public and the interior design world.
