Yet another of my favourite artists who I came across on facebook a few years ago, Florence H from Montpellier in France, I love the colour and vibrancy of her work, lots of deep blues and folk figures. Her description on website continues..
“The approach is intended to Florence H similar to that of the alchemist, Nicolas Flamel, who had found the formula to turn lead into gold.
She recovers packaging, plastics, old newspapers and discarded in fact his favorite material. The object discarded, useless, or even bulky pollutant found, by the almost magical transformation that it undergoes the artist, a new life, an aesthetic power and universal meaning.
By intention and creativity of the artistic gesture, the waste becomes vulgar sublime work, he dies, then is reincarnated in the immortality of the artwork”
