Mon 15th June: Lynette Yiadom-Boakye "Verses After Dark" at The Serpentine

Just as a quick interlude to the menswear show coverage, I have to mention the seriously beautiful exhibition of Lynette Yiadom-Boakye "Verses After Dark" at The Serpentine ..............  to follow the Wales Bonner review, because the two go hand in hand with both their preoccupations and inspirations.  Here are two quick snaps I took because I don't think photographic reproduction of the work would do it justice.  You need to go and see the exhibition in the flesh for the flesh tones to appreciate the density and divinity of the canvases & etchings.  The bold and confident strokes are the best in contemporary portraiture and painting that I have seen for a very long time.
