Art Now: Lisa Brice
Lisa Brice has her first solo institutional exhibition in the UK with 'ART NOW: LISA BRICE' at Tate Britain in London.
In this presentation Brice expands her recent use of a near single colour palette to include dynamic reds and deep greens to create large-scale paintings which address the art-historical tradition of the female nude.
Shown alongside sketches, drawings and studies, her paintings reference art history with nods to works by historical painters such as Degas, Manet, Picasso and Vallooton. Including a new painting inspired by John Everett Millais' ‘Ophelia', held in Tate's collection. As Tate's press release states - "Brice reverses the traditional portrayal of passive female figures by male artists for male viewers and returns the power to the women involved".
This follows Lisa Brice's acclaimed exhibition at Stephen Friedman Gallery in 2017 that featured a series of intimate portraits of women using a distinctive cobalt blue paint.
