Laurence Leenaert Biography

Laurence Leenaert was born in Kortrijk, Belgium and studied Fashion at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent, Belgium. After an internship at Bless, Berlin, in 2013 she launched her own design studio, LRNCE, in response to fast fashion and short-lived seasons. Her designs quickly became sought after in high-end outlets such as Conran Shop, Picasso Museum and Le Bon Marche Paris.

In 2015 she relocated her studio from Ghent, Belgium to Marrakech, Morocco, where she was able to further develop her practice working with local materials such as wool, clay, leather and wood. Invisible Subjects at Cadogan Contemporary, March 2020, was the artist's first ever presentation of her paintings.

Laurence's paintings are the basis of her designs for her ceramic and textile limited editions. The paintings are designed, painted and woven by entirely by her, by hand. Some of the patters and colours are then used for her designed editions, which are crafted by local artisans in Morocco. Cadogan Contemporary is delighted to be showing the unique paintings of LRNCE in London.
