Summary

"Offering the first comprehensive look at one of the most exciting young artists working today, this book presents a decade-long retrospective of Dana Schutz's work. Dana Schutz plumbs the depths of humor and horror, fantasy and reality in her colorful, expressive paintings. This exhibition catalog 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-firstcentury politics, celebrity, religion, and mores is both absurdist and prescient. Her works are splashed with vibrant color 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."
