American, b. 1974

In her spare, exquisitely detailed prints and gauche on paper paintings, Amy Cutler draws from the media, popular culture, fairytales, and her own experiences to convey the complexities of womanhood. At once autobiographical and universal, Cutler’s works are sweet and dark—delicately rendered, whimsical parables illustrating the deleterious effects of the unrealistic expectations that cultures impose on women. Referring to the impossible definitions of femininity by which we are constantly assailed, Cutler says, “Contemporary culture is entirely rife with magic and folklore.” A sense of magic infuses all of her works, in which women engage in strange, enigmatic, and often useless tasks against white backgrounds—mending gashes in tigers, pulling buildings with their long braids, flattening each other with irons. If this is a woman’s work, Cutler suggests, may it never be done.
