Michael Cutlip’s paintings with their highly individual style and color palette have become a recognizeable force in the Bay Area art scene.  in the words of essayist Paul Liberatore, Cutlip is like a jazz musician - he improvises, painting variations on a theme in a style that is distinctly his own. His fans can tell a Michael Cutlip painting just as jazz buffs can identify Miles Davis or John Coltrane after the first few notes.  

Michael has that elusive quality that artist’s strive for.  He can change and respond to a painting in the middle of the process while constantly challenging the work by inserting something unexpected and improbable.  It is in resolving these disparate elements over and over again that he has honed his craft and found his own very clear voice.  His work is consistent and finely realized and yet he is full of surprises, incorporating the unexpected at every turn and finding a way to make it work.
