Lisa Yuskavage "The Brood" At The Rose Art Museum in Waltham, Massachusetts

Lisa Yuskavage’s select showcase of “trouble causing” oil paintings opened this past week at Brandeis University’s The Rose Gallery. Yuskavage noted that “the first thing I do is paint the eyes looking at you,” a technique that encapsulates the intensely surrealistic, animated life in her paintings. Unabashedly female, and verging erotic, Yuskavage’s works certainly speak for themselves. Lisa Yuskavage "The Brood" can also be found as a monograph (purchase here) – the exhibition will be on view until December 13, 2015 the Rose Art Museum in Waltham, Massachusetts. photographs by Tenlie Mourning
