Here is one of the ink drawings I sent to the following exhibition in the beautiful city of Niort France. Winterlong gallery, which has been working with many excellent international artists for a number of years, has curated this really cool line up including this time the work of about 70 artists displayed at the Pilori Museum. I had the pleasure to work with Winterlong Gallery 4 years ago for an installation I did at the museum in collaboration with artist Kid Acne. The title ‘Un dessin est beau si la ligne est vivante’ is a quote by Jean Cocteau and refers to the theme of the exhibition: all works are drawings on paper.
This weekend saw the opening of No Words Required a group exhibition celebrating the art of silent comic at A Month Of Sundays gallery in Sheffield. I prepared this painted illustration based on the movie ‘Under The Skin‘ by Jonathan Glazer. The exhibition runs throughout august Opening times: Tuesday – Saturday, 10:00 – 17:00

Buy art and help The Sheffield Children’s Hospital:
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.
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. All photos are taken by Andy Brown.
Long time since my last post! I’m now on Instagram as well @FlorenceEmagram please join me!
Many news to come but for now: I’m participating to ‘Eurotopia‘ at La Escocesa in Barcelona – a fanzine launch and exhibition curated by Zosen, which opens on April 18. For the occasion I made a new Dropman print edition at B&B gallery.
Last week I had the pleasure to be invited by photographer Mark Howe to his beautiful studio in Sheffield for a portrait shoot. We used one of my recent paintings: Night Visions as a backdrop.

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.
