Many things can motivate an artist, but as Lisa Yuskavage's comments to Time Out New York about her newest pneumatic nudes at David Zwiner suggests, the ball can get rolling with one idea. In Yuskavage’s case, it’s a fascination with hippies. Yuskavage is known for her interest in psychology—her own and other people’s—and with this series on the Woodstock generation, she uses hippies as a symbol of her own memories of growing up in the 1970s amid the wreckage of the counterculture. She explains why—and why men appear for first time in her work—in this self-annotated look at her artworks.
“Lisa Yuskavage” opens Apr 23 at David Zwirner.
