Biography from a third party submitted on 09/09/2010:
Geoffrey Laurence was born in Patterson, New Jersey and moved to England and at the age of four where he lived for the next 38 years.  While in England he attended three art schools including Byam Shaw School of Art, and the London College of Printing.  Laurence received his Bachelor of Arts at St. Martins School of Art in 1971.  Laurence later attended the New York Academy of Art where he attained his MFA Cum Laude in 1995.  As a painting and drawing instructor at schools such as Gage Academy of Fine Art, Andreeva Portrait Academy and L.A. Academy of Figurative Art he continues to educate himself and others in the disciplines of art.

Geoffrey Laurence has been drawing and painting the figure for more than thirty years.  Not very interested in pop art or conceptual art of his contemporaries he found himself more engaged with the luminosity of the figures seen in the museums of old masters.  He works with a three-layer oil painting process known as indirect painting using glazes and color to highlight his structural forms with the objective to use classicism in a modern way.  Geoffrey’s work explores the relationship between the contemporary figure and specific classical paintings.  Though his work utilizes the knowledge of 600 years of classical painting there is an intention to maintain a connection between the old master's techniques and its relationship to the representation of the modern figure.  Laurence does not consider himself a naturalistic realist but is more concerned with the challenges of creating an emotional narrative that speaks to modern times.  Laurence considers himself more of an “emotionalist” or “feelist” rather than the typical classification of a contemporary realist.
