Lee Price is an American contemporary figurative realist painter.
Her work focuses on the subject of food with the solitary female figure in private, intimate settings — figures that are always lost in what might appear to be the bliss of consumption in highly unusual environments and portrayed from a unique aerial point of view. This odd perspective creates an illusion or feeling of an out of body experience as if the subject is looking down at herself. While clearly demonstrating her amazing technical skills, the circumstance of consistently depicting female figures in the act of compulsive behavior tends to hint at an underlying message.
My personal fascination with Lee Price's art is her relatable subject matter expressed via provocative and sensual visuals all the while maintaining a strong elegant and aesthetically pleasing tones. Capturing moments of truth and intimacy, her works are fascinating to me.
