About the Artist

Nancy Cuttle does not just start a sculpture…she starts a movement.

Nancy Cuttle is a figurative sculptor working in Winterstone, steel, clay, glass and natural stone. Sculpting the human form using exaggerated gesture and expression, she engages the viewer emotionally in issues that shape our society. In so doing, her sculptures act as catalysts for communication and introspection around the social issues that concern her. A popular speaker for cultural organizations, her presentations explain the societal trends and personal influences that inspire her work as well as documenting the complex process involved in creating a major sculpture installation.

For the past 15 years, Cuttle has addressed the impact of social, political and economic changes on women. In 2000, she completed a landmark sculpture series in celebration of Canadian women in the 20th century. So significant was this body of work, that it was exhibited in the Hall of Honour of the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, an honour never before bestowed on an artist.

In her current installation piece, Fenced, five bold life-sized figures react to the often conflicting consequences of the barriers that we as a society erect. The raw emotions of the gestures and the positioning of the figures engage the viewer in experiencing the emotional, sociological and physical impact of barriers. To broaden and enrich the conversation, the sculptor incorporates written and spoken word in her work.

Nancy lives and works in Milton Canada where she is a prominent contributor to the growing arts community. For the past 8 years, she has opened her studio to the public during the Milton Studio Tour to share her philosophy and process of making meaningful art. Her commissioned and inspired works are installed in public venues in Milton and held in private collections across Canada.
