EVOKE Contemporary proudly presents Lee Price in her first solo exhibition in New Mexico. The show is scheduled to open in Santa Fe on Friday, May 6, 2011 and will run through Tuesday, May 31, 2011. There will be a reception for the artist on Friday, May 6th from 5 – 7pm and the public is invited!
American Contemporary Figurative Realist painter, Lee Price 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.
Do not miss this first delicious show that sets the tone for the summer season of exhilarating and highly potent exhibitions of masterful and internationally recognized talent at EVOKE Contemporary!
