About Dana Schutz
Dana Schutz combines fantasy and reality, humor and horror, to create figurative paintings that abound with expressionist energy.
One of the most important young artists to emerge in the past ten years, she has developed a distinctive visual style characterized by vibrant color and raw and tactile brushwork.
The subjects of Schutz’s paintings spring from an absurdist sensibility as she invents imaginary stories or hypothetical situations that are bizarre and impossible, yet oddly compelling. (Neuberger Museum of Art)
