Well imagine my surprise when I discovered these paintings by Beacon, New York-based artist Lee Price. Seems this hostess needs to be a little more... adventurous... with her bathtime.
While the colors, the women, and the treats are quite beautiful, her decision to render them so hyperrealistically lends them an eerie and uncomfortable air, as if we are catching these women at their most vulnerable and embarrassed moments. The consistent birds-eye perspective feels extra voyeuristic.
Touche, Ms. Price. One-upmanship has always felt weird but never looked so good.
