“Portraiture is central to my practice” explains artist Yvonne Todd. “As an artist I’m fascinated by the seemingly endless iterations of portraiture and its elements of the psychological, the scope for adornment, costume, styling, and the connection between the subject and camera and, subsequently, the viewer.

In Flayed Buttercream, an exhibition of new work by Yvonne, we are introduced to four new characters: Cloudie, Emerald, Infra-Haze and Ice Blue... and a strangely pleasing found-object.
