009 Dana Schutz

For young New York artist Dana Schutz, painting is a necessity of her imagination. Working within strict self-imposed codes of representation, Schutz develops elaborate fantasy worlds, fictions which can only exist in paint.

Dana Schutz, "Face Eater", 2004, Oil on Canvas, 46 x 58cm

From a series of paintings of auto-cannibals, Face Eater is funny and bizarre. The dark background pushes the full horror of the subject to intimate proximity: a zoom lens view of the slimy suggestion of a tongue lathering up the last of his own eyeballs. A parable of confrontation and discomfort, Schutz invents a race that would rather swallow itself rather than cope with its own inadequacy.
