Lisa Brice challenges the misogyny of historical figuration typically painted and looked upon by white men, taking back ownership over how women are portrayed.  Working within the parameters of art history, she echoes iconic compositions by artists such as Degas, Manet and Picasso, but instead lends her subjects agency and self-possession. Her interiors draw on the artist’s personal experience and photo archive from living and working between South Africa, London and Trinidad over the past 20 years.
