Suttle’s individual artwork is based on anxiety and control. Exploring the eternal struggle between restraint and disorder: the way we tend to conceal our inner confusion with the outward appearance of refinement and perfection. The work has become focused on revealing this chaos; making the invisible visible again. Materials consist of everyday industrial materials such as aluminum tubing, packing tape, monofilament, L-brackets, and hose clamps. Through gestural installations, she reveals her understanding of the difference between uncertainty and certainty. Suttles received her MFA in sculpture from Pratt Institute in 2011.
