Born in Merseyside in 1954, Lawrence Quigley was educated at The Laird School of Art, Birkenhead (1971-72) where he completed a Foundation Course Diploma in Art and Design. He then attended Loughborough College of Art and Design (1973-76) and achieved a B.A. Hons. Degree in Fine Art, Painting and Printmaking..  He obtained an MA in Fine Arts from the Royal Academy Schools in 1980 and has been a lecturer in Fine Art and the History of Art from that time.  He has exhibited work nationally since 1976 and has paintings in numerous public and private collections.  He has a formidable list of one-man and joint shows already to his credit and has received many awards and bursaries.  His paintings evolve from a diverse range of sources and stimuli and he seeks to attain that same mystery and ambiguity that, universally, parallels our collective existence.  He says of his work “I endeavour to capture the atmosphere or mood of place in a direct response to landscape or figurative subjects. They are nearly always painted in situ and are as much about painterly and abstract qualities as the expressive and spontaneous translation of perceptual experience. The process is itself part of the subject of the work”.
