DESCRIPTION

Dana Schutz combines fantasy and reality, humor and horror, to create figurative paintings that abound with expressionist energy. Her distinctive visual style is characterized by vibrant color and raw and tactile brushwork. Schutz’s subjects spring from an absurdist sensibility as she invents imaginary stories or hypothetical situations that are bizarre and impossible, yet oddly compelling. This first 10-year survey features approximately 30 paintings and 12 drawings created since 2001 and will include work from each of her inventive series.
