Lisa Yuskavage: On Printmaking

Lisa Yuskavage has been collaborating with master printers at ULAE since 2001. Her eye for color and inventive techniques have pushed the boundaries of contemporary printmaking as she continues to challenge the studio and explore imagery in a myriad of technical processes. Yuskavage describes printmaking as "the perfect medium" to experiment with material, and she finds inspiration in looking at other artists' prints and their progressive states as she constantly questions and considers every component of the print.

Following her show in New York: Babie Brood: Small Paintings 1985-2018 at David Zwirner, Lisa Yuskavage sat down with the gallery to discuss her fascination with the printmaking process and the direct relationship her prints have to her paintings. Video courtesy of David Zwirner.
