The first monograph on the American artist's poetic, magical work.
Amy Cutler's paintings and drawings lure the viewer into an enigmatic world populated by women, some with elongated noses, tea kettle heads, broomstick arms or wearing altered hoop skirts. Inspired by stories and images encountered at random through mass media, Persian miniatures, army survival guides, nineteenth century illustrations, folktales, personal experiences, and current events, the Brooklyn-based artist (*1974 in Poughkeepsie, New York) creates exquisitely detailed scenes of women, animals, and hybrid beings engaged in otherworldly dramas. Her works, which include gouache on paper, paint on wood panel, and drawing, have been described as "snippets of Laura Ingalls Wilder, Hieronymus Bosch and Masterpiece Theatre plotlines". Her frequently humorous visual ideas leave the viewer with an uneasy feeling-for instance, despite the loving care they give, a group of women watch as their snowmen-companions melt away. This will be the first book published on Cutler's work. Exhibition schedule: Indianapolis Museum of Art, March 10 - June 4, 2006
