Between 1984 and 1990, Yuskavage painted women that she later characterized as demure in nature.[5] At the suggestion of her husband, the artist Matvey Levenstein, Yuskavage began to imagine herself as the subject of her paintings, which allowed her to change her perspective and to assume a new character in her work.[5] Her new style often features the nude female form as voluptuous and with exaggerated curves.[6] These nudes have been compared to both classic pin-ups and soft pornography.[7] The role of voyeurism is also key to the artist’s work.[8] Yuskavage has previously cited the actor Dennis Hopper’s character, Frank Booth, in David Lynch’s Blue Velvet (film), as her inspiration for the source of the male gaze in her artworks

I find her work fascinating but am not sure I get it. Is she exploring female forms, male fantasies, or the cinema.

I told you, I'm over David Halliday

One of the more important parts of my work and most collagists that I’ve seen is the ‘title’. A lot of times it is whimsical. Some times a line from a song I happen to be listening to at that time. Or, as is the case in this point, it comes right out of the collage.
