Bernard and Barbro Osher Gallery
Amy Cutler’s finely executed drawings and watercolors are grand in scale, imagery and potential for creative interpretation. The main characters in this New York artist’s narratives are always women, often in groups, where together they engage in specific but unusual (and sometimes, unidentifiable) tasks such as mending tigers, beating pigs out of rugs, or fastening birdhouses on each others' heads in order to go birding.

About

Amy Cutler’s finely executed drawings and watercolors are grand in scale, imagery and potential for creative interpretation. The main characters in this New York artist’s narratives are always women, often in groups, where together they engage in specific but unusual (and sometimes, unidentifiable) tasks such as mending tigers, beating pigs out of rugs, or fastening birdhouses on each others' heads in order to go birding. Inspired by her personal life and current events, Cutler’s magical, elaborate, ordered yet inscrutable narratives provide a unique take on issues of modern femininity and representation as well as offer timely parables about our world today.
