Went along to the opening evening of Florence Blanchard’s exhibition at Pete McKee’s gallery, Month of Sundays, in Sheffield. The exhibition had an astounding opening evening with a load of folk turning up and a wealth of eye fodder.
Flo’s work is definitely worth checking out in person with your own eyes. The photo’s do not do the detail and intricacy justice.
Utilizing acrylic, watercolor, silkscreen and spray-paint on canvas – Ema creates a world of abstract scenes populated by illustrative figures in a dream-like state. She explore themes of symbolism, genealogy, and science fiction.
Flo’s work with grey scale is truly amazing, layering inks on somerset paper she creates a visual treat. Inspiration comes from her time spent in Brooklyn, strong women and her graffiti background.
The exhibition is on until the 14th July (see our events page for details), if you are in the area it’s definitely worth popping in. There are also some lovely tea and cake shops in the area to refresh your tummy’s whilst you contemplate.
