Lee Price

When I first saw Lee Price's incredibly realistic paintings in Bust magazine, I was immediately intrigued. As you'll notice, her work primarily focuses on women and food; life-size works feature Price in unusual eating situations:

"In this society, there's so much pressure for women to be thin. We're not supposed to have appetites—and not just for food, but for a lot of things."*

I love how the paintings of her in bed surrounded by food unites the two taboo appetites for food and sex. The colors are also delightful too, both saccharine but not overly saturated.

  1. Love her. I've been seeing a lot of photo/art projects lately surrounding female body image and challenging cultural demands/expectations. Its so encouraging.
