Lisa Yuskavage...Women painting women


Lisa Yuskavage at David zwirner  


LOVED this


similar to john currin in the technique and with a recognizable figurative distortion. with yuskavages work i feel like its as if divinci suddenly discovered disneyworld and then came back to brooklyn to look for figurative muses.  The technique is apparent while infused with this bursts of colorful and figures with playful eccentricity



beyond that enigmatic smirk...


Happy Birthday Leonardo!   

Da Vinci is most well know for his modestly sized enigmatic painting of Lisa del Giocondo the Mona Lisa, but he was a true renaissance man in his many contributions to knowledge and the arts.
