    About The Work

    I knew that I wanted to be paiting subjects that did not exist or could not be painted from observation... I wanted to visualize the subjects, like it was a thing that I wanted to see pictured, so tht was a reason to paint it. - Dana Schutz
    Strangers is a set of 10 large-scale etchings by Dana Schutz. Schutz, often regarded by her peeers and critics as the best painter of her genration, brings to her etchings the same dynamism that enlivens her paintings. In creating her subjects, Schutz draws influence from cubism and expressionism, but also other movements of the 20th and 21st century, creating images that feel familiar but are entirely unique. 
    Schutz rarely presents the viewer with an easy subject. Even works that seem lightharted are imbued with a dark hilarity, such as a woman who holds here dog a little too tight, or a head that appears to be squeezed from its turtleneck like paint from a tube. In presenting the viewer with situations that seem unimaginable, awkward, or even grotesque, Schutz constantly asks us to reimagine the world we live in and inspires us to look at our surroundings with a fresh eye.
