Lisa Yuskavage

New Paintings

David Zwirner is pleased to present concurrent exhibitions of work by Lisa Yuskavage at the gallery’s 34 East 69th Street and 533 West 19th Street locations in New York.

A group of new large-scale canvases relating to the artist’s recent "Couples" paintings will be featured uptown. These charged depictions of often interlocking, interdependent male and female figures developed out of the artist's series of "symbiotic" portraits from the early 2000s that paired two female figures to evoke a sense of a dual manifestation of a single personality.

On view in Chelsea will be an extensive survey of Yuskavage’s small-scale paintings, organized in close collaboration with the artist. A constant and integral part of Yuskavage’s overall practice, the small paintings play a remarkably dynamic and protean role within it, as the artist has consistently employed this format to explore a wide variety of media, techniques, sources, and purposes. The largest presentation of these works to date, the exhibition will include key examples from each of Yuskavage's most important series, spanning the full breadth of her influential career, from the mid-1980s to new, never before exhibited paintings.
