Born in South Africa in 1968, artist Lisa Brice spent extended periods of time living and working in Trinidad before settling in London. This month, Brice’s work – which includes large-scale paintings that address the longstanding art-historical tradition of the female nude – will go on show at Tate Britain for the first time. Her work depicts women, alone or in groups, chatting, getting dressed, undressing or escaping the heat of the sun for a beer or a cigarette. Brice captures women in moments of downtime, engaged in a private world, performing everyday rituals. In so doing, she confronts male objectification and representations of traditional femininity.
