AMY CUTLER TURTLE FUR
Introduction by Laura Steward, texts by Aimee Bender, interview by Aimee Bender with the artist. Published by Hatje Cantz.
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, 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, also 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.
Amy Cutler is represented by Leslie Tonkonow Artworks + Projects, New York.
