Laurence Figgis is an artist and writer who lives and works in Glasgow. His creative practice involves drawing, painting, collage, poetry and fictional writing, and explores the craft of storytelling in relation to visual composition.
He has previously exhibited work in Glasgow, London, Rome, Graz and Perth, Australia. His recent exhibitions include ‘ANY-KENT’ at the Briggait, Glasgow and ‘Oh My Have’ at 1 Royal Terrace, Glasgow (both 2015). As an artist-writer he has produced numerous specially-commissioned texts for artists’ exhibitions and catalogues including for Lorna Macintyre, Zoe Williams and Cathy Wilkes. His live-performance work ‘Even Or Perhaps’ (an oral recitation of his prose-poem of the same title with a percussive soundtrack provided by the artist and musician Jack Figgis) took place at DCA, Dundee, in August 2014.
