Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new paintings and works on paper by South African artist Lisa Brice.

About

This will mark the second show at the gallery for Brice, who is based in London, and follows her highly acclaimed solo exhibition in 2018 at Tate Britain, London.

Brice's new body of work continues her interrogation of the male gaze by contesting and reinterpreting traditional depictions of women throughout art history. Playing with notions of liminality and agency, Brice treats her paintings like doors or portals by providing voyeuristic access into otherwise private spaces, typically playing with quintessential images of ‘the studio'. Painted in rich hues of vermillion and cobalt blue, images of female empowerment and defiance such as women wielding paintbrushes and cigarettes populate Brice's recent work. Mirrors, smoke and panelled folding screens are used as formal devices to interrupt and veil her subjects.
