From press release:
We are extremely pleased to announce that Amy Cutler's thirteenth one-person museum show will open on Saturday, February 8 at the Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, Nebraska. Curated by Karin Campbell, the museum's Phil Wilson Curator of Contemporary Art, the exhibition features a selection of the artist's recent drawings and paintings on paper.
In the illustrated brochure accompanying the exhibition, Campbell writes:
In Amy Cutler's images, uncanny and seemingly impossible scenarios unfold in stunning detail. A consummate draftsperson, Cutler finds stylistic inspiration in an array of art historical sources, including Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints, and Persian and Indian miniatures.
...Calling upon transformative life experiences–such as buying a house and giving birth to her son–Cutler uses her work to process the collision of the inner psyche and the outside world. Despite being at the center of these narratives, Cutler does not feature her own likeness in her work and instead pursues a more conceptual form of self-portraiture that connects her own story to those of other women.
Born in 1974 in Poughkeepsie, New York, Amy Cutler attended the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste, Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main, Germany and earned her BFA from The Cooper Union in New York in 1997.
One person shows of her works have taken place at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia; the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City; the Indianapolis Museum of Art; Museo Nacional Reina Sofía, Madrid; Bowdoin College Museum of Art, Brunswick, ME; the Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC; SITE Santa Fe, New Mexico; the Art, Design & Architecture Museum, University of California Santa Barbara; the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, Virginia Beach; the Huntington Museum of Art, Huntington, WV; and most recently the Butler Gallery, Kilkenny, Ireland.
Cutler has participated in numerous group shows and major surveys throughout the US and Europe including, among many others, the Whitney Biennial, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2004); Greater New York, MoMA PS 1, Long Island City (2005); ARS 06, Museum of Contemporary Art KIASMA, Helsinki (2006); Global Feminisms, Brooklyn Museum (2007); Darger-ism: Contemporary Artists and Henry Darger, American Folk Art Museum, New York (2008); I-Lands, Kunsthallen Brandts, Odense (2009); Drawing Stories: Narration in Contemporary Graphic Art, Museum Folkwang, Essen (2012); and Drawing Now, The Albertina Museum, Vienna (2015).
