Dana Schutz: Missing Pictures
Zach Feuer Gallery, through April 25
"Dana Schutz’s new paintings look a tad better on the gallery’s Web site than in person.

Or maybe their complexity of palette and composition is not mutually enhancing; these canvases need to get away from one another. Still, Ms. Schutz deserves credit for not repeating herself. She continues her ambitious exploration of color, technique and history, both political and painterly..."
