Dana Schutz, Floating Pieta (2020). Gouache and graphite on paper. 112.08 x 77.15 cm. Courtesy the artist and David Zwirner.
One of our highlights at Art Basel OVR: Miami Beach this year is this Dana Schutz gouache and graphite on paper work showing with David Zwirner, who recently announced representation of the artist.
The bulging eyes and pained expressions of Dana Schutz's figures, together with a classically triangular arrangement, recall the Christian pietà scene from a Gothic sculpture that inspired the artist.
Schutz's creation owes more to the German Expressionist paintings of Max Beckmann, but the energetic physicality and vivid colours are typical within her oeuvre.
