I had a chance to go see Lisa Yuskavage's show in April at Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis. What I admire about her work is that there are so many information packed in one painting. There is a story, a narrative being told. Poetic is another word I use to describe her work. There are clear distinction between foreground and background that the background dissolve into space. Her painting is visually balanced. She uses striking imagery yet it is balanced by subtly.
