Genieve Figgis' paintings share a similar dramatic bent as some Irish-English literature subjects from Edgar Allan Poe to Oscar Wilde, as well as acknowledged Old Masters such as Goya. Her scenes depicting bourgeois homes, traditional portraits, or landscapes are often haunted by spectral figures and leering creatures with canes and top hats. A sense of the charmingly macabre emerges from Figgis' combination of an apparent pictorial banality with dreamlike qualities.

  • Selections


    September 24 - 30, 2020


    Almine Rech is pleased to share its second Selections, which is being shown exclusively in its Online Viewing Room. This presentation consists of seven premier works—all dating from 2020—by seven artists.
    Most of the works were slated to be shown at Art Basel's September fair (akin to the format of the first “Selections” edition, which presented works scheduled for exhibition at Art Brussels, Art Monaco, and TEFAF).
    The artists represented are John M Armleder, Genieve Figgis, Marcus Jahmal, Rudolf Polanszky, Kenny Scharf, Vaughn Spann, and Genesis Tramaine.
