Artist Lee Price loves to create realistic oil paintings, that show women and food in their most intimate and private settings.
These pictures are actually self-portraits, showing Lee getting excessive with food that is considered especially indulgent and forbidden. I guess you could say that her work points to the pressures that women face on a daily basis.
As Lee explains: "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. We’re the givers and not the consumers, and I think some of my recent paintings are about the women staring at the viewers and saying, ‘I’m not going to censor my appetite’."
