About Lyric Prince
Lyric Prince creates symmetrical geometrically inspired digital and analogue art that often touches on racial and physical dysmorphia. Her work calls to a need to recognize and identify patterns of all types in every day life, and juxtaposes them in kaleidoscopic and repeating forms. Her use of bold colors and sharp, contrasting lines construct an environment that will immerse and gradually split apart the subject at hand, drawing the subject into a gradual progression of increasing abstraction. She often takes drawings and paintings and digitally rearranges parts into something new. This process allows her to recycle art and ideas, as she may have several reuses from one piece. Her work becomes a self-regenerating kaleidoscope of inspiration.
During her residency, Prince would like to engage the public about art appreciation at the Torpedo Factory. She’d also like to use the space to complete several large kirigami (cut paper) sculptures.
Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, Prince received her bachelor’s of fine arts from Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia and recently completed a master’s in science, technology, and society from Drexel University in Philadelphia. Her interest pertains to cultural anthropology, specifically on how art can be designated for political and personal representation. Her practice is project-specific and often includes digital installations, paper sculpture and art criticism. She currently lives and works in D.C.
