Brooklyn based contemporary artist Charles Lutz is best known for his paintings and sculptures that deal with various value structures. Lutz introduces a complex vision that questions perceptions of originality, while also looking at the abstraction and transience of our values. Lutz has received critical acclaim for major installations at The Andy Warhol Museum, The Carnegie Museum, as well as the 2013 Armory Show.
Mining imagery from sources diverse as the refuse of mass consumer culture and contemporary advertising, to ephemera from the worlds of Contemporary Art, Auctions, and finance, Lutz explores the human experience and it's value structures both in full spectrum as well as in the microcosm of the world of Contemporary Art.
