The gallery presents new work by South African artist Lisa Brice. This is the artist’s first exhibition dedicated to paintings on paper.
Vibrant works in cobalt blue gouache line the walls of 11 Old Burlington Street. Each work is an intimate figurative portrait of feminine power and sensuality.
This is Brice’s first exhibition at Stephen Friedman Gallery. She was born in 1968 in Cape Town and now lives and works in London, 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. Brice’s work was recently included in the much lauded exhibition ‘Making and Unmaking’ curated by Duro Olowu, at Camden Arts Centre in London last year.
