FOCM: Spring Summer
Spring Summer is a collection of works that compresses themes of love, nature and artefact apropos of the seasons they are made. These are intimate moments; friends at rest, freshly sprung trees, a backseat view - all familiar, believable. In these works, Flo continues a practice of working quickly from life, layering and stretching multiple moments within a single surface, where an intuitive exploration of chaos creates the possibility for new motifs, through both painting and queerness. By the method of recording and animating, Flo redraws spaces so that the familiar becomes strange, with carefully detailed representations sitting alongside pure abstraction in the same scene. This embrace of contradiction, combined with boldness of expression, vivacious layering and uncanny colour language insists on the here and now coexisting with an internal mutability.
