Dana SchutzUnited States
Art Brokerage: Dana Schutz American Artist: b. 1976. Dana Schutz is a painter in New York. She graduated with a BFA the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2000 and an MFA from Columbia University in 2002. She grew up in Livonia, Michigan a suburb of Detroit and graduated in 1995 from Adlai E. Stevenson High School (Livonia, Michigan). Her work is already present in all the major museums in North America and Europe, as well as in several important private collections. A number of her works are in the Saatchi Gallery and a large canvas titled "How we cured the plague, 2007" is currently on display in the permanent collection of the prestigious Mart Museum (Museo di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea Trento e Rovereto) in Italy. She exhibits at Zach Feuer Gallery in New York and her first European solo show, Self Eaters and the People Who Love Them, was in Paris's Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin. Her bright, fantastical works have been compared to Currin, Goya, and Katz. In Bomb Magazine, critic Mel Chin wrote that "dissection and dismemberment abound in Dana Schutz's work, all offset by sunny colors and a pert sense of humor. Among other things, she has created a race of people who eat themselves; a guy called Frank who is the last man on Earth; a gravity-phobic person who has tied herself to the ground; and a variety of characters that are spliced, for different reasons, on operating tables. Schutz loves to give her characters life and then cut them up. Yet hers is a blithe cruelty, the curiosity of a child playing at being a creator. Even when she hates, she does it with whimsy."Read More +
