Dana Schutz is a concise exhibition of the artist’s recent work. One of the most prominent painters of her generation, the New York–based Schutz (b. 1976, Livonia, Michigan) is known for her distinctive visual style characterized by vibrant color and tactile brushwork. Her large-scale paintings capture imaginary stories, hypothetical situations, and impossible physical feats, such as swimming while smoking and crying. Equal parts darkly humorous and surreal, Schutz’s paintings combine abstraction and figuration with expressive imagination, truncated and re-constructed bodies, banal objects, and quotidian scenes to create oddly compelling and intriguing pictures...

I didn’t know Dana Schultz and it was a very good surprise and discovery. I love big and colorful paintings and so they were, without being naive. And they make think about their subject and the world around us. A very good experience and a must see if you are in Boston.

A fairly unique style on large canvases with lots of color makes for a visually-pleasing stroll through this show. Some I like to look at but mostly I like the ideas behind the work (i.e. 'Swimming. Smoking. Crying').
