About this edition
To help support our organisation during this period, we have released a special selection of previously sold out editions from the House of Voltaire archive. With exclusive works from a number of international artists, this is the final time that these editions will be available to purchase. Studio Voltaire is a registered arts and education charity with all sales directly supporting our exhibition, learning and studio programmes.
Brice's practice is concentrated on haunting and emotive portraiture. She references art history, images of women in the media and photographs she has taken herself.
This new edition has been made especially for House of Voltaire to support Studio Voltaire's exhibition and learning programmes. Working closely with a master print maker, Brice has created a new work on paper which features an enigmatic image of a woman poised on a piece of furniture and looking over her shoulder and smoking a cigarette.
