Lisa Brice (b. 1968) is based in London, United Kingdom.
This untitled print, created and produced especially for Editions for ArtThrob, is a highly expressive lithograph which pursues the theme of adolescent love and desire – the focus of the work presented on Brice’s acclaimed 2007 exhibition at the Goodman Gallery, Cape Town, titled ‘Base One Two Three’.
Brice’s untitled lithograph is hand printed in three colours on Arches paper by Stephen Inggs and Andrea Steer in the Printmaking Studio at the Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town.
Lisa Brice was born in 1968 in Cape Town, South Africa; she currently lives and works in London.
Brice majored in painting at Michaelis UCT, her early work included constructed artworks combining found objects, or domestic materials such as linoleum, with steel to make wall artworks, installations and sculptural pieces. In the last decade she returned to painting, her work negotiates with authority the difficult terrain between spontaneous drawing and figure painting. She uses various painting and off set printing techniques on a variety of surfaces from canvas to tracing paper, which often leads to repetition of a similar motifs or figure’s in her work, sometimes biographical, at other times referencing art history.
In 2006 Brice had her first solo exhibition of paintings at Goodman Gallery Johannesburg titled Night Vision in which the artist reflected on the uncertainties of childhood. In 2009 a solo show titled More Wood for The fire was presented at Goodman Gallery Johannesburg; here the work dealt with Brice’s relationship with the island of Trinidad. In 2011 her work was included in the Vitamin P2 publication, Phaidon’s major anthology of international painting. In 2012 Brice presented a solo exhibition titled Throwing the Floor at Goodman Gallery Cape, Cape Town.
Her first solo exhibition in London took place in September last year at the French Riviera Gallery, and a continuation of a new series which features a cast of female figures/protagonists, engaged in acts of looking and being looked at, will be exhibited at the Goodman Gallery Johannesburg in April 2015.
