Catalogue Note

"Entering a Lisa Yuskavage show is like falling into a candy-colored female fever dream...In this strange psychosexual universe, female figures stand along, baring their breasts in fields of peachy pink, lemon yellow, or minty blue."

Tamara Jenkins, "Holy Innocents" in Tamara Jenkins, Lisa Yuskavage, Small Paintings, 1993-2004, New York 2004, p. 9
