Genieve Figgis

Floating World


Press release

Almine Rech Shanghai is pleased to present Floating world, an exhibition of recent work by Irish artist Genieve Figgis, on view from September 20 to October 19, 2019.

Figgis’ first solo exhibition at Almine Rech Shanghai – her fourth with the Gallery – brings together new pieces very much in line with her previous work, focused on painting idyllic and romantic scenes (polished interiors, lavish costumes) and characterised by her unique technique in which the colour pigments are both richly textured and free-flowing.
