Lee Price is a figurative painter from New York.
She creates realistic oil on canvas with women and food in their intimate and private settings.
About her work she says: “In this society, there’s so much pressure for women to be thin. We’re not supposed to have appetites – and not just for food, but for a lot of things. We’re the givers and not the consumers, and I think some of my recent paintings are about the women staring at the viewers and saying, ‘I’m not going to censor my appetite”.
So, it’s a matter of private intimate space, the relation with your body, and to take time for yourself. Finally she recreates her limbo of pleasure.
