Dana Schutz
1976, Livonia, USA. Lives and works in New York

Dana Schutz’s work teeters at the edge of tradition and innovation.
Despite her utilization of orthodox points of departure such as narrative,
portraiture, and surrealism, Schutz avoids falling into the thematic and stylistic trappings of those canonical formats, and thus manages to work just outside
of expectation. This ability radiates from Schutz’s lyrical and technical
command of paint as both a medium and a pictorial object.
