Dana Schutz, a graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art, has gained renown for her large, quirky, and emotional yet ambiguous paintings that combine bold, bright colors with abstract figures. She gained notoriety in 2002 with the exhibition Frank from Observation, a kind of postapocalyptic narrative in which she cast herself as the last painter and the titular Frank as the last subject. Fourteen years later, her mesmerizing work continues to captivate viewers.
