dana schutz at ccs tomorrow!

Don't miss this! - lecture at ccs by artist Dana Schutz
Thursday, October 19 at 7:30 p.m.
"The CCS Woodward Lecture Series presents DANA SCHUTZ, painterSchutz, a native of Metro Detroit, has been widely praised for her ecstatically expressive figurative paintings, recognized by their thick, lush surfaces and flamboyant palette of hot pinks, leafy greens and eggy yellows. Teetering on the edge of tradition and innovation, she describes her work as "embracing the area between which the subject is composed and decomposing, formed and formless, inanimate and alive. Recently I have been making paintings of sculptural goddesses, transitory still lifes, people who make things, people who are made, and people who have the ability to eat themselves." Schutz earned a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art (2000) and an MFA from Columbia University(2002). Her paintings have been featured in one-person exhibitions in New York, Boston, Paris, Berlin, and Santa Fe, and in many group exhibitions, including the Prague and Venice Biennials."

Dana had a lunchtime meeting with students at CCS on the day of her lecturee. She spoke to them about her experiences as an artist, about her grad school days, and told them what it was like to move to New York and set up a studio.

This young woman was a kind, unaffected, sharing person. It almost seemed as if she was amazed at the great success she she has achieved in her career so far. She spoke of how painting was so very important to her life, and really made such a great impression on all who met her that afternoon.
