Another Nude, 2013, oil on board, 25x30cm
Genieve Figgis lives and works in Dublin, Ireland. Her fascination with people is explored in portrait paintings that question how we choose to present ourselves.
Figgis draws from contemporary and historical resources to unearth the things hidden from view. Her paint describes the spectacle and reveals the façade of portraiture.
Her recent shows include Atomic, Transition Gallery in Ravenscourt Park, London, 2013 and the Threadneedle Prize at Mall Galleries, London, 2013. She has work in numerous private collections including the Richard Prince Collection.
