Amy Cutler

Amy Cutler is an internationally acclaimed artist best known for her enigmatic illustrations of women performing strange, cryptic tasks: carrying goats on their backs in Above the Fjord, sewing tigers in Tiger Mending, dancing with chairs on their heads in Dinner Party. Rendered simply, though with exquisite detail, Cutler's style is reminiscent of European folk art; however, the narratives are left unexplained and the white backgrounds of her drawings provide little context or clues to the meanings. The fantasy world she creates is sometimes humorous and other times ominous.
