Genieve FiggisBook - 2017
Combining the dark wit of Francisco Goya with the lush painterly style of Elizabeth Peyton, Dublin-based artist Genieve Figgis paints quickly but deftly, cycling through a range of painterly styles and highly charged content, from bawdy, sexual vignettes with women and men in various states of undress to darker, more macabre scenes. This volume features the full complement of the artist's work, including select drawings as well as an interview of the artist by Dodie Kazanjian, and an essay by Alison Gingeras exploring Figgis's storytelling and how this relates to the artist's Irish roots.
