Amy Cutler

Feb 15, 2011 At SITE Santa Fe

During the past decade, Amy Cutler (b. 1974 in Poughkeepsie, New York) has become internationally known for exquisitely detailed narrative works of art. Inspired by stories and images encountered in current events, art history, fairy tales, and personal experiences, Cutler creates exquisitely detailed, enigmatic paintings of women, animals, and hybrid beings involved in fantastic, dreamlike activities.

Set in a richly imagined universe and created through a pastiche of memories, observations, and insights, they are populated mostly by women engaged in inscrutable tasks and impossible situations: tigers are mended and restriped; figures emerge from the rocky crags of a fjord.

With faces that are both resolute and introspective, Cutler’s women symbolize the emotional complexities of real life situations.

Amy Cutler will be introduced by SITE’s former Phillips Director, Laura Steward. Following the talk, Steward and Cutler will be joined by Santa Fe-based graphic designer David Chickey as we celebrate the release of a new Amy Cutler monograph with a book signing.
