Amy Cutler : Turtle Fur, Hardback Book

Description

During the past decade, Amy Cutler (*1974 in Poughkeepsie, New York) has become internationally known for exquisitely detailed narrative works of art.

Set in a richly imagined universe and created through a pastiche of memories, observations, and insights, they are populated mostly by women engaged in enigmatic 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.

This publication will premiere new paintings, drawings, and prints, including a selection of earlier works and a special section devoted to Alterations, a sculpture installation created for the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid.

Exhibition schedule: Site Santa Fe, February 5-May 15, 2011 | University Art Museum, University of California Santa Barbara, July-September 2012
