Paintings by Controversial NY Artist Lisa Yuskavage

 lisa yuskavage paintings nude erotic controversial nyc

Lisa Yuskavage is Philadelphia-born visual artist whose work strikes an interesting contrast between age-old methods of figurative painting and very modern concepts of sexuality in the mass media. Her work courts controversy due to its graphic imagery: the almost cartoonish way in which she paints the female body and then places this in a fantasy realm of heightened colours and emotions.
