Lee Price

Artist Statement

"I make paintings about compulsive eating and the relationship between women and food. The narrative of my career has been that of the evolution of this theme, refining its focus and broadening its scope."


Lee Price was born in the small upstate New York town of Elmira. She studied painting at Philadelphia’s Moore College of Art and has a long-held fascination with the intersection of the subjects of women and food. The images—bird’s-eye views of women surrounded by luscious-looking desserts or the crumpled wrappers of a junk-food binge—are all self portraits. Lee currently lives and works in Beacon, NY. She is represented by Evoke Contemporary in Santa Fe, NM.
