Lisa Brice’s work interrogates the male gaze by challenging and reinterpreting traditional depictions of the female nude from the perspective of a female artist.

Lisa Brice was born in 1968 in Cape Town, South Africa. She now lives and works between London, UK and Trinidad.

Brice contests the misogynistic nature of historical figuration typically painted by white men for white men and takes ownership over how women are portrayed. Working within the parameters of art history, she echoes iconic compositions by artists such as Degas, Manet and Picasso, but instead lends her muses agency and self-possession. Her interiors draw on the artist’s personal experience from living and working between South Africa, London and Trinidad over the past 20 years. 

In 2018, Brice had a solo exhibition at Tate Britain, London as part of their Art Now series. Brice will have a major institutional exhibition at GEM, The Netherlands in late 2020.
