I happened upon an Amy Cutler piece in Harpers and had to find out more, so I ordered this book. This woman's art just makes my head spin. I usually find that I'm excited about an art book, then quickly relegate it to the coffee table and move on, but I keep coming back to the images here again and again. They are generally images of women, but I wouldn't call it 'feminist art' (whatever that means). To me, she's saying a lot about the bonds between women, the bonds over women, and the way that the world can make us feel disembodied sometimes. The work is surreal enough to make you think, but not so abstract is to leave you baffled. It's women, in a circle, doing some chore (weaving, brushing, cleaning) but there's a tweak to it all that makes you look closer. Somewhere in the intro a person described Cutler's images as "inevitable" and I'd agree. It's like I've seen these before, except I haven't, and I think that speaks to the kind of universality of experience Cutler taps into. My take: this book is smart and subversive and even funny in places.

I bought this mostly for the short story by Aimee Bender, but I quickly feel in love with Amy Cutler's work. The book is sturdy and has a good amount of context. I keep looking at it again and finding new quirks. It was one of those books that you cant leave on the coffee table and wait for someone to come over, you have to take it with you to work and show everyone you know. At least I did, but I may have been a little too excited about it.
