Geoffrey Laurence was born in New Jersey and moved to England at a very young age where he resided for nearly 40 years. He attended 3 art schools in England. After receiving his BA , he attended the New York Academy of Art where he attained his MFA Cum Laude in 1995. He taught painting and drawing at Gage Academy of Fine Art, Andreeva Portrait Academy and L.A. Academy of Figurative Art.
He has been drawing and painting "the figure" for more than 30 years. 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.
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.
