Lot Essay

“I don’t write out stories, in the way a writer would; the situations are very loose. I never want the viewer to have to know the whole story to “get” the painting. What you see is what you get. If it’s a painting of a person eating their hands, they’re eating their hands. Often I will invent hypothetical situations that can act as surrogate situations for conditions that I am thinking about and that I always feel are logical.”
- Dana Schutz, quoted in M. Chin, “Dana Schutz,” BOMB Magazine, Spring 2006.
