SERIGRAPHIE – A new exhibition at The Sheffield Children’s Hospital

Buy art and help The Sheffield Children’s Hospital:

‘Sérigraphie’ is a new exhibition and collaboration with Artfelt, The Children’s Hospital Charity‘s arts programme and B&B gallery.

For this occasion I have produced a brand new exclusive print titled ‘Blossom’.  As always, the edition is very limited – only 25 on view and available at the hospital, and on their online shop. The show is focussed on screenprinting with an explanation of the origin and the process of the technique. You’ll find there other exclusive prints – such as an edition of only 10 Dropman prints, which you can only get there along 20 other original artworks. All sales are welcome and will help the hospital.

Thank you!

New piece at Museum Sheffield Millennium Gallery

This week saw the installation of my latest Particles piece in Sheffield. A big window installation on the front of Millennium Gallery. It is the first time I work with vinyl, and am really happy with it. A big thank you to everyone involved at Millennium gallery and Signs Express Sheffield for making it happen.

Mini Snake Charmer

I created a mini version of the ‘Snake Charmer’ in collaboration with the National Fairground Archive. Black on gold card, all printed by hand at B&B screenprinting studio in Sheffield this mini print is embossed, signed and numbered on the front and the edition size is 150. This print edition was physically included in exactly 100 of the very special NFA20 fine print limited edition box set. A bit like the golden ticket in the chocolate bars but with much much much more chances to get it (50/50 to be exact -there are 200 box sets). For more information about the box set please contact the NFA.

Night Visions – solo show at B&B gallery

B&B Gallery Presents
NIGHT VISIONS 
A solo exhibition by Florence Blanchard

November 6th – 30th

Private view: Tonight / 6:30 – 9pm
In her first solo show at B&B Gallery, Florence Blanchard presents a brand new body of work composed of paintings, screen prints and mixed media installations. Bold geometric shapes, molecules, fragments and fluorescent colours collide in a planned riot of abstraction in the attempt to investigate the structural complexity of our surroundings.

A number of the works on display are inspired by her recent visit to Japan – where she completed a 350 m2 mural in Betsukai Hokkaido. The title of the show, Night Visions refers to the dreamlike compositions, often painted after dark onto circular black paper, interlocking considered detailed brush strokes with a stream of subconsciousness.

Influenced by her training as a scientist at New York University, together with Gestalt theory and pop surrealism, Blanchard presents a duality in her works’ DNA:
art v science, figurative v abstract and ephemeral v permanent. In this regard, and underpinned by a knowledge that all matter is made of particles – whether animal, human or mineral – Blanchard’s paintings magnify what the human eye can’t see, offering us her unique macroscopic view of the world.

Florence Blanchard is a painter, muralist and printmaker. She was born in Montpellier, France in 1977 and began writing graffiti in the early 1990’s. Blanchard spent ten years based in New York where she graduated with a PhD from NYU. She currently lives and works in Sheffield, UK.
