INDIVI SUTTON: NEW YORK MEMORIES AND HER LOVE OF COLOR
Photography by Petrina Tinslay.
“We can find nature outside us only if we have first learned to know her within us. What is akin to her within us must be our guide. This marks out our path of enquiry."
— Rudolf Steiner
Indivi Sutton was born in New York. She attended Rudolf Steiner School and experienced an education based on imagination and creativity through storytelling: “As much as I moved from Steiner School the teachings and energy has always stayed close to my heart. I moved to Australia with my family 6 years ago and within that time attended Sydney University studying a bachelor of art history and visual arts.”
“As a woman and an artist, my creative expression is who I am and what I do, like breathing. I connect not only with the process of creating but the world in which art lives, the history, people, places, writings, fashion and nature.” The December issue of The House Magazine published an interview about her artistic journey, and her understanding and appreciation of color, not necessarily an externalized view, but something she felt deeply through memories that would transform into light and tones.
Kacie Perez, opens the article saying: “Creating beauty with intention has become an art form as we continue to adapt to the fast paced world built around us. For Indivi Sutton, everything is creative, but is done so with a deep connection to the memories in her life and the natural world. From a very young age, she was taught not to just look at color, but how to feel it and connect with it, leaving her with the ability to create visual journeys for her audience. This appreciation for color is easily seen throughout her work and is something that made me pause and absorb. It is simplicity at its finest.”
