Lot Essay

‘I always loved figurative painting and I've always wondered what that power was that I kept coming back to and I realized it was less about individuals than about how they had been pictorially constructed. What was it about their eyes? How was that achieved through this painting?’
(L.Y.-Boayke, quoted in J. Higgie, 'A Life in a Day: The Fictitious Portraits of Lynette Yiadom-Boakye', in Frieze, issue 146, April 2012, http:/www.frieze.com/issue/article/a-life-in-a-day/ [accessed 12 September 2015]).
