Schutz's exhibition "Piano in the Rain" features her signature tropes of excess, taboo and mayhem, yet this time with a layer of sadness underneath. You get the sense her characters, though ultimately grotesque, are trying to connect, to impress, to perform, for you the viewer. Like the persistent piano player, hunched over in the rain, Schutz's characters possess an over-the-top desperation.
