  • Catalogue Essay

    'I think there is always a negotiation in painting, where images begin to infect one another, and you decide what you can accept and in what amount. Images can be used like material and not just as appropriation or pastiche; they can be more slippery and nuanced. When they actually begin to play off each other and open up new meanings, it can be the best feeling in the world.' - Dana Schutz

  • Artist Biography

    Dana Schutz

    American • 1976

    Michigan-born artist Dana Schutz is known for presenting chaotic, colorful scenes that often inject humor into awkward or painful situations. Though primarily a painter, her practice expanded to include sculpture in 2019—a natural transition for her dynamic style. Schutz first shot to prominence soon after receiving her MFA from Columbia University with her Self-Eaters series. 

    Schutz is one of just a handful of contemporary female artists whose work can fetch over $1 million at auction. The Brooklyn-based artist has shown her work in museums in both North America and Europe, and her work has been collected by such institutions as the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, and Los Angeles County Museum of Art. She is married to fellow artist Ryan Johnson, who she met during her time at Columbia.
