The Butler Gallery is delighted to present the first exhibition in Ireland by the New York-based artist Amy Cutler. 

Cutler’s paintings and pencil on paper works are both dark and delightful – whimsical allegories illustrating the destructive effects of the unrealistic expectations that cultures impose on women. Cutler draws from a combination of her own memories and life experiences and current events to convey the complexities and cultural subtexts associated with womanhood. The rituals Cutler illustrates and the allusive narrative world she creates between her archetypal characters become a fascinating conversation full of intrigue that reveals the interior and exterior life of women.
