“I've always been suspicious that there is a reality more real behind objects,” says Eugenio Cuttica. “The purpose of my work is to show others that dimension.” Cuttica paints strangely familiar but implausible scenes, seemingly drawn from dreams and the subconscious. Realistically illustrated figures appear, though often placed within ethereal or abstract settings that suggest an interior or emotional state. In several works a young girl recurs; often placed in contrast to animals and lush fields, she functions as a stable form against which other elements are measured. In Luna and Bull, her ghostly and alert presence is juxtaposed with the animal's lethargic gaze and unwieldy form.
