Artist Statement

VISIT MY NEW WEBSITE FOR THE LATEST! http://www.meredithcutler.com

The joy I find as an artist stems from the transformation of the base, or castoff, into the energetic sublime. Material is the issue; material isn't the issue. No hierarchy. Elements in my work range from the suspicious: kitchen and bathroom plastics, hair, studio debris; to the traditional: fibers, found decorative papers, acrylics; to the latest in technology: digital photography and projections. Ever inundated with ideas and cross-references in the fact-paced world that I inhabit, I often turn to a traditional, disciplined process such as weaving, and adapt it to my situational needs. I create a hybrid of focused process and alchemy. The combination and pull of disparate elements force me to find new reasons for art making.
