Shana Lutker

Inspired by dream analysis, psychoanalytic practice, actual objects, and historical documents, Shana Lutker’s conceptual works explore the boundaries between the subjective and objective nature of reality. Working with a variety of media, including drawing, sculpture, performance and installation, Lutker reframes familiar objects and clichés, and addresses archetypical anxieties such as desperation, guilt, shame and loneliness. Disabling the frameworks and assumptions we rely on between reality, time and history, Lutker exposes the instability of knowledge, and resultant anxieties between the individual and civilization.

Shana Lutker was born in Northport, 1978, New York, and received her MFA from UCLA in 2005. She has exhibited widely throughout the U.S., and had exhibitions in Europe as well. Her work has been written about in the New York Times, Art Review, and Time Out New York. Lutker lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
