Permutations of the Body

Lisa Yuskavage - thesis painting for the current show at Zwirner

To the right of the small painting, a lone figure contre jour, though the time is sunset

Detail, left of mound - light brushwork, as if watercolor

Triptych: theme of doubling arises

Triptych: right two panels. Transfer of early shrink imagery into a community of observers.

Doubling again, using pyrotechnic flowers to shift from pictorial to symbolic space, then back.

On 20th St., Nick Cave at Jack Shainman with another kind of body permutation...

These join bodies together and also separate them from other bodies.
They are garments that contain the language of desire (fashion) and differentiation.
