“You have to be polite with your friends and your family,” the American painter Lisa Yuskavage has said, “but in your art, it’s important not to be polite.” And that goes double for women. Yuskavage has not only not caved, her unabashedly sexualized figures practically beg for a hyper-feminist analysis. A new solo show looks beyond the eroticism that is front and center in her work, and focuses instead on Yuskavage’s landscapes, their heated and tumescent sense of depth and color. —J.V.
