Lisa Yuskavage

Drawing both from art history and popular culture, Lisa Yuskavage creates figurative works that challenge genre conventions in their emotional range and formal invention. The artist frequently depicts characters the are both exhibitionist and introspective—figures who are simultaneously on display while observing themselves and their environment. Yuskavage's fantastical compositions combine realistic and abstract elements where color determines meaning and harmony coexists with conflict.
