About Oliver Lutz

New York–based artist Oliver Lutz tackles themes of power, control, and disintegration through bodies of work that conflate painting, drawing, video, and audio. A recurring premise in his projects is how one can change a viewer’s customary relationship to looking at art—how the normal codes of viewer, subject, and representation can be deconstructed and reconfigured.

Oliver Lutz was born and raised with his twin brother on a goat farm in rural Maine. He received his MFA from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, in 2006. His work has been included in the following group exhibitions: Übergangsräume—Potential Spaces, Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart, Germany (2007); Wight Biennial: Anxiety of Influence, New Wight Gallery, Broad Art Center, Los Angeles, CA (2006); A Forest I, FILTER projektraum, Hamburg, Germany (2006); and Kamp K48, John Connelly Presents, New York, NY (2006). Lutz was recently awarded the IV International Painting Prize, Certamen de pintura Diputación de Castellón, Spain (2007).
