Larain Briggs is a Camberwell artist born in Essex in 1960. She first studied art formally under a local Kent artist, Nick Bristow, RA. This was followed by a Foundation Course at Maidstone Art College and a BA(Hons) in fine art at Camberwell College (UAL). She has also supplemented her skills by studying Computer Aided Visualisation, Art Education (PGCE at Goldsmiths), Psychology, and Art Therapy. Larain’s art was recognized on leaving Camberwell when Sweet Waters Gallery exhibited her work and represented her at various venues including the Islington Business Design Centre. While she continues to frequently exhibit in the UK, in London and East Anglia, she has exhibited in Bulgaria, Madrid, Brussels, and Milan. Her work is collected worldwide. Currently, she is exhibiting in Suffolk at The Hangman’s Gallery. Larain's work has for many years been inspired by Carl Jung and the exploration of the unconscious mind. She often works in a similar manner to the process of the Surrealists, “automatism”. Mostly she is inspired by the work of other artists and is influenced by her environment and mood. The images equivocate between figurative content and abstract form. The conceptualization can be at times ambiguous and enigmatic. Experimental use of media and found objects are employed as a means to express automatic or unconscious influences on perception and memory. She explains her process as a lifelong spiritual journey of self-discovery. View all posts by larainbriggs
