Lisa Brice’s beautifully poetic exhibition Well Worn is currently showing at the Goodman Gallery in Jo’burg. It ends 14 MAY 2015. Make sure not to miss it.
“Lisa Brice’s new body of work features a cast of female protagonists, engaged/absorbed in autobiographical acts of looking, and being looked at. Grooming, making up, stripping down, dressing up within the confines of domestic, private or veiled interiors, they are involved in self scrutiny, awareness, consciousness, affirmation, adoration, promotion, loathing, deprecation, defence, defiance, protection, reinvention, presentation. The mirror reflection reoccurs as a central property, simultaneously functioning as an alter ego and an imagined audience beyond the private, as well as formal device within the painting.”
