Catalogue Note

"Yuskavage was delighted by no longer 'making people comfortable'...an early practitioner, giving voice--or rather image--to the no holds barred model of what a woman artist was entitled to do. She was giving herself permission--and us by extension-- not to be tied down, to shock even herself, to be subversive; she had chosen subjects of a previously distinctly male gaze." Patricia Zohn, The Huffington Post, "Lisa Yuskavage: The Journey of an Art Star," June 23, 2010
