Lee Price

Lee Price first developed a reverence for painting from her mother, a high school art teacher. Lee received her BFA from Philadelphia’s Moore College of Art. After spending 11 years in Los Angeles, she returned to New York to study at the Art Student’s League and the New York Academy of Art. She went on to study independently with Alyssa Monks who Price cites as her greatest influence. Growing up in a household exclusively of women has had an impact on Lee’s subject matter. Her work focuses on the complicated relationship between women and food. Painting scenes from an aerial viewpoint creates a sense that the subject is looking down on herself, frequently watching herself in an act of compulsion. Price’s paintings have been the subject of numerous solo and group shows across the United States. She is represented by Evoke Contemporary in Sante Fe, New Mexico, and Wendt Gallery which has showrooms in Laguna Beach, New York, Singapore, and Vienna. Lee currently lives and works in Beacon, New York.
