Lisa Yuskavage

David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Lisa Yuskavage, on view at the gallery's 519 West 19th Street space. This will be the artist's third solo show since her first exhibition at the gallery in 2006.

Over the past two decades, Yuskavage has developed her own genre of the female nude: lavish, erotic, cartoonish, vulgar, angelic young women cast within fantastical landscapes or dramatically lit interiors. They appear to occupy their own realm while narcissistically contemplating themselves and their bodies. Rich, atmospheric skies frequently augment the psychologically-charged mood, further adding to the impression of theatricality and creative possibility.
