“Sutherland chooses to minimize attachment of definition onto the paintings because for him with each visitation or viewing of the piece is achieved a new uniquely cathartic experience. When working through heartache, that is what the painting is about. The same painting is then used to work through a set of traumas. The physical fluidity represented in the work is the very same representation of its meaning. The colours and shapes within the pieces are often reductive reference points seeded to stimulate the development of said reflective experiences. Created through and for means of expressing the core internal conflicts and exaltations which make us all human is where his works find their universal appeal for those open to examining themselves through what they reflect unto the physical world.”
