Reviews on Lynette Yiadom-Boakye

In the press

Below you find different press reactions to Lynette Yiadom-Boakye and the third Capsule exhibition, which presents new works by the British-Ghanaian artist.
Yiadom-Boakye's paintings move within the European tradition of figurative painting and illustrate its full range of formats: from small, intimate closeups to large-scale works whose size and impact are reminiscent of history painting. With her expressive representations of the human figure, the artist examines the formal mechanisms of the medium of painting and reveals profound psychological dimensions in her works.
