Yvonne Abercrombie paints figures using equal amounts of opposing ideas; comic and classical, kitsch colour and natural hues; fake imagery and real content.
Her bold portraits draw inspiration from a broad range of genres – romance novel art, comic and pulp art, medieval manuscripts, mythological representation and naive art. These sources provide her with a diverse visual library of the figure, from which she gains a greater understanding and appreciation of alternative representations of the female form.
