ARTIST STATEMENT 

Sutton Betti's sculptures are inspired from a stew of art forms; illustration from the early to mid 20th century, classical music, the Beatles, contemporary figurative painting and sculpture and Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel ceiling. He is known and respected for his ability to render the human form with a spark of life. Betti's sculptures are clearly marked by an understanding of the human body and human experiences, but his handling of negative space and composition adds to the uniqueness of this young artists repertoire of works.
