The figure: Christopher Moss, Scooter LaForge, Dana Schutz

Fantastic, irreverent figurative paintings are on view both in Chelsea and in Bushwick this month. At Theodore:Art, Christopher Moss turns the head into a blocky minimalist landscape/architectural element, and Scooter LaForge creates odd, inventive narratives. In her first show at Friedrich Petzel, Dana Schutz continues her exploration of the awkward dysfunction that accompanies human interaction.�Tom Micchelli wrote a terrific review of the show in Hyperallergic Weekend on Sunday.
