Genieve Figgis – MFA Graduate, NCAD

The portraits are not painted from life and therefore they are not aiming to boost ego. Never drawing from life, it is far from the traditional portrait I try to represent. The characters are no one important but may bear similarities and people may look familiar. The portraits are sometimes humorous but I am not trying to evaluate anyone’s behaviour, they just represent what is under the rug.
