"Yiadom-Boakye paints… 'little gaps of solitude and silence' and distills profound emotions into a single glance or small gesture brimming with eloquence. She posits tranquillity as a form of resistance, serenity as meaningful act." —Andrea Schlieker

Lynette Yiadom-Boakye: Fly In League With The Night

Edited with text by Isabella Maidment, Andrea Schlieker. Text by Elizabeth Alexander, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.

"Tie the Temptress to the Trojan" (2018) is reproduced from 'Lynette Yiadom-Boakye: Fly In League With The Night.'

Dramatically reinventing the lineage of Goya, Sargent and Manet, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye imbues the Black subjects in her paintings with atmospheric grace and elegance

Taking inspiration from the techniques of historic European portraiture, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s oil paintings could almost be from a much older era if it were not for the contemporary details of the Black subjects that populate her work. Though her subjects are people conjured in her imagination, Yiadom-Boakye imbues her portraits with a near-tangible spirit through her deliberate brush strokes and rich dark tones.

The result is paintings that seem to exist outside of time while still remaining grounded in reality. This lavishly illustrated volume of nearly 80 paintings and drawings—some of which have never been exhibited before—accompanies the first major survey of Yiadom-Boakye’s work, shown at Tate Britain. In addition to new fiction writing by the artist, this publication includes in-depth thematic essays on Yiadom-Boakye’s artistic development, reflecting the dual aspects of the artist’s career as both a painter and a writer and offering an intimate insight into her creative process.
Lynette Yiadom-Boakye (born 1977) is a British artist and writer acclaimed for her atmospheric oil paintings that depict imagined sitters in dark color palettes, executed with a contemporary sensibility while still rooted in an art historical practice. She attended Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design, Falmouth College of Art and the Royal Academy Schools. In 2018, she was awarded the prestigious Carnegie Prize.

FROM THE BOOK

Excerpt from Inside the Order Is Always Something Wild
by Elizabeth Alexander


"…I think of the deep understanding of human exchange, as well as all we never understand about each other. No matter how deep our intimacy, we are still vastly unknowable to each other. I have wished, with loved ones, to be inside of them, to know all that they think, to possess their memories, to see through their eyes. I have wished to step into their pelts and walk as they do. I have wished sometimes to grab them with my teeth by the scruffs of their necks – children, lovers, the best of friends – and carry them to the cave of mutual understanding. Intimacy is that animal and intense. The fascination as well as the vexation of intimacy is that we can never, truly, know each other completely.

Yet the light that insists its way through darkness is our human bond. Lucille Clifton: ‘the light insists on itself in the world’. It is miraculous, given all that shrouds us, that we come close together as often as we do. Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s paintings believe in and make available that indelible truth. We may sometimes struggle to see each other, to come near each other. We may stand in close proximity and look directly at each other, as her paintings invite, but it takes several passes, several exchanges, the passage of time, to actually see and know each other more deeply."
