Artist’s Nude, NSFW Self-Portraits With Junk Food Takes on Food Shaming
You will never feel bad about eating an egg and cheese sandwich in bed after viewing these stunning paintings, that’s for sure. (What? Just us? Don’t pretend you haven’t done it.)
The Huffington Post highlights artist Lee Price and her latest work, featuring a whole lot of nudity, greasy fast-food, and bathtubs (very reminiscent of Lena Dunham eating a cupcake in the bathtub on Girls). (And no, that’s not Lee Price up there.) From HuffPo:
Binging on Doritos, Twinkies and jelly donuts, Price uses her body and habits to access a strange food-centric phenomenon that is hard to explain and harder to control. “The aerial view evokes the feeling of an out of body experience: the subject is watching herself engage in compulsive behavior but is unable to stop,” she explains. “There is an absurdity to the repetition of this act of compulsion. At the same time it is an attempt to find real nourishment.” Rather than label women’s eating habits as good or bad, Price playfully explores the serious reasons women occasionally indulge in absurd eating rituals, asking what it is they’re really looking for. Lucky for us, she does so in a rather gorgeous manner.
Yep, they are gorgeous. Head to HuffPo to see Price’s work.
