An Afternoon in Chelsea

2. DANA SCHUTZ
Zach Feuer

Through May 19
What can you say about a celebrated young painter who, with the ease of a fashion stylist, re-poses the Mona Lisa 90 degrees to her left? Shown in profile, her smile obscured by a curtain of hair, Leonardo’s muse leads us into Schutz’s fascinating (if perplexing) series of what-ifs. The oddest and best canvases, How We Would Give Birth and the large-scale How We Cured the Plague, reveal a painterly imagination that delights in the messy, undignified aspects of the human form.
