Dana Schutz is a concise exhibition of the artist’s recent work. One of the most prominent painters of her generation, the New York–based Schutz (b. 1976, Livonia, Michigan) is known for her distinctive visual style characterized by vibrant color and tactile brushwork. Her large-scale paintings capture imaginary stories, hypothetical situations, and impossible physical feats, such as swimming while smoking and crying. Equal parts darkly humorous and surreal, Schutz’s paintings combine abstraction and figuration with expressive imagination, truncated and re-constructed bodies, banal objects, and quotidian scenes to create oddly compelling and intriguing pictures.
