« Painting is easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you do – Edgar Degas »
Flore aims to strip away all of the filters society places on our lives, all of the habits we get stuck in, the rules we blindly follow, and the stereotypes we subconsciously subscribe to. Flores paintings bring to mind the work of street and pop artists like Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and George Condo. Using written words with layers upon layers of meaning both partially concealed and exposed, the artist attempts to deconstruct and reveal those layers inbuilt in society for what they really are. There might be a lot of distractions upon one of his canvases but look closely and think, they exist to represent how wrapped up we can become as a society while we continue with our daily lives.
