Amy Cutler at the Moss Arts Center
Amy Cutler's exquisitely detailed drawings, prints, and gouache-on-paper paintings are informed by folk art, Persian miniatures, medieval art, Japanese ukiyo-e prints, and the Brothers Grimm fairy tales. Cutler's works weave utterly fantastical stories by women engaged in the most surreal and unlikely tasks. Immensely intriguing and playful, these works delineate the many absurdities and challenges that often characterize women's lives--their prescribed roles, their fears, and their dreams--while also presenting a fictional utopia of strong and self-reliant women. Cutler lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
