Bill Suttles Smaller Works
Beginning in March 2020, as we all started to self-isolate to stop the spread of Covid-19, my dad decided that he wanted to work in a more impromptu, spontaneous style. Bolder, without reserve, and elemental.
The result of going in this new direction is producing two new collections which he is calling:
- Studio Small Works
- Studio Short Takes
Studio Small Works
My father explains his Studio Small Works as “a more contemplative reaction to a particular time and place.” The artwork is a mixed media on textured paper with more artistic development measuring 8.5 x 11″. The paintings are sold in a 12 x16″ matt and are framed in a wide, plain white frame under glass.
Studio Short Takes
My father explains his Studio Short Takes as an “immediate emotional response to a visual experience. The artwork is a mixed media on textured paper with more linear work, measuring 8.5 x 11”. The paintings are in a 12 x16″ matt without glass or frame; artwork and matt only.
Bill Suttles Original Paintings
Here is a collection of originals by my dad, Bill Suttles, spanning his lifetime, including early work, sold work, current ongoing gallery exhibits, and work available for purchase online.
Bill Suttles Style
Trained as an illustrator, my dad uniquely combines his illustrative eye with his use of pastel, oil, ink, and gouache, along with other mediums to create his unique style and use of color.
These paintings vary in size, medium, and subject matter. Bill Suttles’ favorite subjects are rural Southern Appalachia and Europe, as are his figurative, the Southern, and Maine, coastal work.
A few of my father, Bill Suttles’ art is available as Archival Fine Art Prints. All printing uses archival inks on archival materials resulting in an artwork that will always be an accurate representation of the original.
We create the digital capture used for printing with the most advanced equipment; color is hand balanced to match the exact colors in the artwork at the time of capture by art reproduction experts. Those same professionals then make prints onto the archival material best suited to reproduce the original texture.
