Like many of Lisa Yuskavage's portraits of female nudes, the subject of kk is hyper-sexualized: the curves of her breasts, hips, and belly are over-emphasized and echoed in her button nose and draped shawl. Though not as bawdy or scandalous as some of Yuskavage's "bad girls," this lithograph seems to be more of a parody of sensuality and male voyeuristic fantasies than an earnest portrayal of female sexuality.Read Less

Lisa Yuskavage, the premier "bad girl painter" of the contemporary art world, is well known for her highly sexualized paintings of the female form. Dreamy and pornographic, almost as if they were painted from 1970s Playboy spreads, Yuskavage's compositions feature anatomically impossible female bimbos with gigantic breasts, extended derrieres, and tousled hair. They daringly portray male sexual fantasies from the perspective of a female.

An increasingly popular subject of solo exhibitions at major institutions, Yuskavage is the recipient of numerous awards, including a Tiffany Foundation Grant and a MacDowell Colony Fellowship.Read Less
