Lynette Yiadom-Boakye ⁣ A Passion Like No Other ⁣ 2012⁣ “Lynette Yiadom-Boakye is a British artist and writer acclaimed for her enigmatic portraits of fictitious people.⁣ The figures in Yiadom-Boakye’s paintings are not real people – she creates them from found images and her own imagination. Both familiar and mysterious, they invite viewers to project their own interpretations, and raise important questions of identity and representation.⁣ Often painted in spontaneous and instinctive bursts, her figures seem to exist outside of a specific time or place. Her paintings are coupled with poetic titles, such as Tie the Temptress to the Trojan 2016 and To Improvise a Mountain 2018. Writing is central to Yiadom-Boakye’s artistic practice, as she has explained: ‘I write about the things I can’t paint and paint the things I can’t write about.’”⁣ #paintings #painting #artlovers #famousartists #famousart #artlegends #masterpieceart #artmasterpieces #thearts #everythingart #arteverything #artislife #artislife e🎨 #dailyart #fineart #arthistorian #arthistorynerd #arthistory #historyofart #artlove #lynetteyiadomboakye #boakye #yiadomboakye #apassionlikenoother #contemporaryart #contemporarypainting #thetatemodern
