Exhibit Dates: November 30, 2021 – January 1, 2022
Opening Reception: Thursday, December 2, 5-8pm
Dena Schutzer’s fourth solo show at the Bowery Gallery includes paintings made mostly during the pandemic that catch particular moments of daily life in NYC and Yonkers, NY. Included are Schutzer’s visceral reactions to the new gravity-defying luxury buildings crowding the West side of NYC, intimate moments with her ninety-year-old mother, scenes from inside a NYC high school, and her neighborhood and parks in Yonkers, NY.
Schutzer writes: “As the beat goes on, the looking goes on, the poetic moments go on, the oddities go on, the brushstrokes go on. Noticing what catches my eye during the natural course of a day has remained true for me during the pandemic as well.”
“Often what catches my eye and pulls me in is based on a moment when the serendipity of a human gesture, an intriguing juxtaposition, a detail that tells a larger story, or a visual rhythm align with each other in an unforced way”.
Painter and writer Simon Carr, has written about her work: “Through Schutzer’s brush we are absorbed in the event, the poignant moment that the artist gives, without losing the knowledge it will disappear. Her eternal is in the ephemeral; she doesn’t require the epic to touch on great themes.”
Schutzer has shown her work at the Painting Center, Washington Art Association, Martucci Gallery, Unison Gallery, Macy Gallery, Westbeth Galley, Kingsborough College, and the Bowery Gallery.
Gallery hours are from 11am to 6pm Tuesday through Saturday. For more information please contact the gallery at 646-230-6655 or email@example.com
