Dana Schutz is an artist from Michigan. The exhibition at Pretzel Gallery displays Schutz’s paintings and sculptures. The artwork shows Schutz’s inner conflicts and emotions by contrasting the pure background and vibrant portrait. The paintings are not focusing on the human scale. Instead of depicting every single details of objects, Schutz uses vibrant colors to show the emotions such as outrage and sadness. The bright, primary colors activate the paintings and makes the artwork more dynamic. Moreover, there is a big concept behind his topic of the series of paintings. There are many social dimensional problems has been explored from his paintings. The painting is like a scope to emphasis a few moments that can represent the issues in our society such as environment issues, personal emotions, and social relationships. The sculptures are the three dimensional expression of Schutz’s artworks. The deformed human body helps people to focus on, the expression of ignored social issues, the moment of Schutz is trying to emphasis on. Dana Schutz’s artwork is not trying to make any smooth and delicate moments. The roughness of the artwork is the aesthetic Schutz is presenting.
