Anne Cutri has been pursuing her artistic endeavors for about 35 years. Her work has always explored the inner landscape and the unseen. Mysticism a key component and of late, prophecy, which orchestrates the symbolic and energetic interpretation of her intimate relationship to the Sacred Trinity and biblical teachings. Her preferred medium is oil on canvas, often mixing with other mediums such as collage. Cutri has shown her work from Boston to Houston and points in between, and is mostly self-taught. She is a member of Christians in the Visual Arts (CIVA) and founded United Christian Artists Revolving Exhibitions (UCARE), as well as Artists Who Evangelize (AWE), which also stands for Art Worship Encounter, an arts ministry which she co-founded at her church in Erie, PA.
Art has the power to heal and transform. It can speak of things yet to come and things that come from within. Align yourself with the Holy Spirit, and you have a great adventure. My work is intuitive and attempts to go beyond traditional interpretations of the bible. To listen, hear, see the Holy Spirit through scripture and interpret its essence, not illustrate the words. There are so many mysteries that may unfold as one paints. Very often I do not know the full meaning of what I paint. If I have an inkling or a certainty as to what is before me, I may or may not be able to articulate its meaning. Often I seek guidance through prayer and scripture, to understand more deeply what is unfolding. The beauty of visual art, is if you create a living work endowed with the Holy Spirit, it should speak to the viewer in their own particular language. In other words, art has the power to carry with it a universal wisdom, and carry a life of its own. If that is accomplished, you have done your duty as an artist. I pray I am able to do what I’m purposed to do, through Him.
