Genieve Figgis’ 2015 exhibitions include a solo show at Almine Rech (London), a booth with Half Gallery at NADA NY and a group exhibition at Invisible Exports. In 2014 Genieve Figgis was featured at the Half Gallery bungalow at the EDITION Hotel during Art Basel Miami Beach and Fulton Ryder published her first artist book, Making Love with the Devil, whose release coincided with her American debut at Harper’s Books in East Hampton. “Yes Captain,” received a review by Art Forum calling her work “replete with lascivious, decadent content”, and GQ Magazine recently compared her paintings to those of Francis Bacon. Her solo show in October 2014 at Half Gallery was chosen as one of David Rimanelli’s picks for Best of 2014 in December’s Artforum, and received a write-up from Roberta Smith in the New York Times. This Irish painter received her master’s degree in 2012 from the National College of Art and Design in Dublin.
