The Butler Gallery presents work by New York-based artist, Amy Cutler, which draws from the media, popular culture, fairy tales, and her own experiences to convey the complexities of womanhood. At once autobiographical and universal, Cutler’s works are delicately rendered, whimsical parables illustrating the deleterious effects of the unrealistic expectations that cultures impose on women. A sense of magic infuses the work, 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.
Amy Cutler: 10 August – 6 October
