Fall Connection Speaker Series | Dana Schutz and Ryan Johnson
Dana Schutz combines fantasy and reality, humor and horror, to create figurative paintings that abound with expressionist energy. Her distinctive visual style is characterized by vibrant color and raw and tactile brushwork. Schutz's subjects spring from an absurdist sensibility as she invents imaginary stories or hypothetical situations that are bizarre and impossible, yet oddly compelling.
Ryan Johnson lives and works in New York and was born in Karachi, Pakistan in 1978. He received an MFA from Columbia University in 2003. His large mixed media sculptures explore psychological and imaginative narratives. His works have been shown in Italy, Luxembourg and New York.
