Biography from Nova Gallery of Fine Art:
Stanley Maxwell Brice (American b. 1936)

A well-known American still life artist, Stanley Maxwell Brice goes far beyond painting beautiful flowers, vases and liner cloths; his works are simply mesmerizing.

It is while working with famed artist Roberto Lupetti, that Brice developed his magnificent skill of painting reflections. This technique is often referred to as tromp d’oeil. The effects of his paintings live up to the technique’s French appellation, meaning “deception of the eye”. So photographically realistic, the “illusion” common in Brice’s works often fools the viewer into thinking that the objects or scenes represented are real rather than painted. Brice’s attention to detail is so accurate that one has the impression he is gazing through a magnifying glass. The work displays the minutest particulars of a subject, whether it be the veins of a rose petal, the droplets of moisture on a leaf, the bulbous base of a silver tea pot, the reflections of a room revealed in a spout, or the lustrous quality of silk drapes. No matter what the subject may be the image simply caresses Brice’s canvas.

Unlike most still life painters, every composition that Brice creates arises from his imagination. He never uses props. When he begins a painting, he primes his canvas to achieve a smooth, glassy texture. Brice then sketches in the subject with pencil. Whether it is a plump piece of fruit, graceful flowers, a fluted champagne glass or a streamlined vase, the detail is already apparent. Next the artist paints the background. Depending on his “feel” for the piece, Brice may start at the top, middle or bottom (he has no formula by which he paints.). Working with small brushes and a wide-range of colors, the artist painstakingly covers the canvas inch by inch, compromising nothing. The result is a unique composition.

In the constant endeavor to widen his horizons, Brice has begun a series of works dedicated to major twentieth century artists. One of his compositions entitled, The World of Fine Art, tributes renowned seascape artist Eugene Garin. Brice has also offered up his talents to honor to such artists as James Fetherolf, William Slaughter, Alexander Dzigurski and Paul Valere. Enthusiastically received by not only the artists themselves, but also by collectors, Stanley Maxwell Brice continues to push the limits of still life.
