Why go any deeper when the surface is so pleasing? That's what I asked a skeptic at the opening for Lisa Yuskavage's long awaited exhibition at David Zwirner. I love everything about this painter and her work; the subject matter, the landscape, the art historical references, the palette of colors, the technique of ephemeral-like painting. Indeed she creates a world of heavenly delights. The fact that some of the biggest artists of our time, from John Currin to Chuck Close were at the opening suggest that they too have a great regard for Ms. Yuskavage and her delicious work.
