Paradise prints<BR>
<BR> 
Paradise Prints are archival inkjets inspired by landscape,<BR>
and printed in small editions of five or fewer. Suggs <BR>
photographs each landscape with  the intended void in mind, <BR>
the circular  abstraction that overlays provides a key to  <BR>
understanding the obstructed view: either in fact  (the <BR>
palette of the landscape), or in symbol  (a reference to <BR>
something external to the  landscape that resonates with <BR>
the scene).
