A zinging chromatic and figurative universe is unleashed in this exciting, career-spanning exhibition by leading American painter Dana Schutz.

A powerful meld of figuration and abstraction, her art features all manner of improbable scenarios, unthinkable situations and unspeakable acts, and in so doing endlessly expands painting’s capacities for meaning, pleasure and significance.

Informed by early twentiethcentury avant-gardes, principally cubism and expressionism, Schutz’s work is an extraordinary and joyful mash-up where a multitude of references and allusions collide.
