Lynette Yiadom-Boakye (born 1977) makes figurative paintings based on a variety of source material. Working in oil on canvas or coarse linen, developing a language through mark-making, colour, scale, and composition has been central to the development of her practice. The characters she constructs are suggestions of people created of the artist’s memories and imagination, and influenced by images, drawings, and photographs. The intentionally ambiguous characters seem to exist in a timeless state where the past, present and future converge, and their individual narratives are left to be constructed by the beholders.
