“In art history, the gaze has long been a subject of concern

“In art history, the gaze has long been a subject of concern and analysis and a number of the figures in Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s paintings directly engage the viewer with their gaze. This is evident in paintings such as A Passion Like No Other (2012) and Bluebird (2014), in which the white teeth and eyes boldly stand out against the brown skin tones and subdued backgrounds.” From ‘Reading Paintings: The Work of Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’ by Amira Gad Lynette Yiadom-Boakye A Passion Like No Other, 2012 Oil on canvas 84 x 80 cm Collection of Lonti Ebers Lynette Yiadom-Boakye: Verses After Dusk Installation view, Serpentine Gallery (2 June – 13 September 2015) Image readsreads.info #LynetteYiadomBoakye #VersesAfterDusk
