Lisa Yuskavage

David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Lisa Yuskavage. On view at 24 Grafton Street in London, this is the artist's first exhibition since the major survey of her work at The Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts in 2015, which traveled to the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis. 

Widely associated with a re-emergence of the figurative in contemporary painting, Yuskavage has developed her own genre of portraiture in which lavish, erotic, angelic and at times grotesque characters are cast within fantastical landscapes or domestic spaces. Seamlessly blending contemporary cultural imagery and classical pictorial language, Yuskavage marshals color as a conduit for complex psychological constructs.
