Dana Schutz plumbs the depths of humour and horror, fantasy and reality in her colourful, expressive paintings. This exhibition catalogue features paintings and drawings created by Schutz since 2001. Each of her wildly inventive series is represented, beginning with Frank as a Proboscis Monkey, which wittily depicts the last man on earth, to her current Verb paintings, in which a woman attempts to perform three incongruous activities at once. Schutz's commentary on twenty-first-century politics, celebrity, religion and mores is both absurdist and prescient. Her works are splashed with vibrant colour and enriched with tactile brushwork. Schutz combines traditional technique with innovative content to create ambitious idiosyncratic paintings for our anxious age. Schutz is the recipient of the 2011 Roy R. Neuberger Prize awarded every two years to an artist for an early career survey and monograph. This volume also features an essay by art historian Cary Levine and an interview with the artist by exhibition curator Helaine Posner.
