About The Artwork

Painted on residency outside of Beijing, China in a small village surrounded by high mountains disappearing into the Great Wall. China leads on surveillance and facial recognition technology, though I was surprised to its' extent. Even in this small village of 400 residents, there were cameras on many street corners and a "telescreen" in the plaza across from the only general store. There is a growing duality to reality and a certain heaviness around it. From this place did I paint this painting, "The Watchpost."

Rhea Cutillo is a contemporary artist concerned with the human-nature relationship and wide open spaces both in the physical, ecological world and in the internal, cerebral realm. She has exhibited across the United States and internationally, including the Alexandria Museum of Art, Yellowstone Art Museum and the award-winning festival List í Ljósi. Her work is in private collections across North America and the U.K. She is a graduate of The Barnes Foundation Museum Barnes-de Mazia Program, Philadelphia PA; Mills College, Oakland, CA (B.A. 2011); and attended the Leroy E. Hoffberger Graduate School of Painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Rhea Cutillo is both an artist and herbalist. Her studies at The School of Evolutionary Herbalism, Oregon, and the East West School of Traditional Chinese Medicine, California have informed her worldview of natural reciprocity and the need for ecological and cultural reconciliation. Currently a Dean's Merit Scholar at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, her projects focus on the importance of embodied knowledge to understand space and place. Her work stems from a recognition that it is not just the biosphere that is disappearing, but our heritage and communion with the land is in question as well. In 2022, her work was published in New American Paintings Magazine #138 and PXV Art Mag #5. In Spring 2023 she lectures and exhibits with Philadelphia Water Works on the impacts of climate change.
