Michael Sutton to display his Figure in Form exhibit at Bay View’s Studio Gallery. Through the art of photography Sutton confronts the Midwest’s conservative culture with an open mind and a sophisticated style. He doesn’t set out to change the conservative nature of the region, but rather, strives to maintain his creative and vibrant background while synthesizing a new fusion in photography and the arts. Sutton’s exhibit shows his understanding of the passion and freedom that comes with art and demonstrates his belief that it is up to each individual’s expression to celebrate the human potential.
Sutton was originally inspired by the ancient Greek Gods and the beauty within their form. His intention was to capture the male form and represent history in a more modern, and what some may call, an ‘erotic’ way. The first gallery showing of ‘Figure in Form’ was during New York City’s Fashion Week in 2008. The gallery was an extended showing of his recent spread in Blue Magazine, published worldwide earlier that year. Now that Sutton is back in Milwaukee, he has had the opportunity to show his work again at Studio Lounge, in Bay View, WI.
