Lisa Brice
Lisa Brice was born in 1968 in Cape Town, South Africa. She now lives and works in London, England also spending time in Trinidad following a residency in 2000.

Brice's practice is concentrated on haunting and emotive portraiture. She references art history, images of women in the media and photographs she has taken herself. Her works typically interrogate the male gaze by challenging and reinterpreting traditional depictions of women from the perspective of the female artist. Instead of being transformed into allegorical figures, her subjects are liberated by the ‘female gaze' as she explores the potency of self-representation.

Brice will have a major solo exhibition at Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, The Hague, The Netherlands opening in November this year. Her second solo show at Stephen Friedman Gallery, London, England opened in September 2019. This followed Brice's highly acclaimed exhibition at Tate Britain in London, England as part of the ‘Art Now' series. Other solo exhibitions include ‘Lisa Brice', Stephen Friedman Gallery, London, England (2017); ‘Boundary Girl', Salon 94, New York (2017); ‘Well Worn', Goodman Gallery, Johannesburg, South Africa (2015) and ‘Cut Your Coat', French Rivera, London, England (2014).

Brice's work was included in the much-lauded exhibition ‘Making and Unmaking' curated by Duro Olowu, at Camden Arts Centre in London, England in 2016.
