Lee Price’s Voyeuristic Self-Portraits

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Lee Price‘s poignant realist paintings of self-gratification thrust the viewer into private moments of indulgence. Painted from a bird’s eye view, the self-portraits depict the artist unabashedly consuming large quantities of junk food while lying supine in her bed or lounging in the bath. These works inevitably evoke the idea of guilty pleasure and bring up the complicated emotions at play in conversation surrounding body image and American women’s relationship to food. Take a look at some photos of the paintings below, images courtesy of Lee Price.
