Laurence Briand  cv
LAURENCE BRIAND French born artist, Laurence Briand’s drawings show a love for the precision of the line. Always working within the medium of pen and ink she looks with a hawk’s eye for detail and a keen sense of humour at street scenes from across the world. Enlivening the disheveled beauty of modern urban life the images emanate with soot and shadow. In ‘Kyoto noodles’ the busy tangle of telegraph wires above a pair of Geisha like girls tottering below evokes the comic contradictions of tradition and modernity in the swelling Asian hub. Although she never formally trained, her pictures reflect an astonishing level of skill in draughtsman-ship and a distinctive, instantly recognizable style.
