Dana Schutz: God Paintings / Contemporary Fine Arts, CFA, Berlin

The solo exhibition God Paintings Contemporary Fine Arts in Berlin (Germany) presents the most recent paintings by the American artist Dana Schutz. In a series of expressive and vividly colored paintings, Dana Schutz imagines, how God might look like without any preconceived connotations. The model for the paintings are the memories and images of God when the artist was a child. She says: "When I was a kid, I thought God was a cross between Bob's Big Boy—a restaurant chain I used to go to in Michigan where I'm from whose mascot is a chubby character with a pompadour—plus that really horrible Ray Charles--inspired big-head moon character from a 1980s McDonald's commercial, and probably Liberace, all somehow mixed up in this pop-culture soup."
Dana Schutz was born 1976 in Livonia, Michigan, and lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Her work has been exhibited both in the United States and abroad, including solo exhibitions at the Denver Art Museum, the Miami Art Museum, The Neuberger Museum of Art in New York, Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, and the Museo d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto, Italy.
