About this Item
Brice painted the present lot, Untitled E, for her 2006 solo exhibition at Goodman Gallery, Johannesburg, entitled Night Vision. The exhibition explored the juxtaposition of fears, hopes, magic and uncertainties of growing up and childhood. In the years that precipitated this exhibition, Brice became fascinated with night vision photography and these photographs became inspiration for the works on this show. This is evident by the colour palette, a greenish monochromatic scheme reminiscent of a camera’s night vision mode, which “suggests, apart from the eeriness of the desaturated colour, a sense of intrigue and an invasion of privacy.”1
