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.
