Florence Hutchings (b. 1996) originally from Kent now lives and works in London.
Florence graduated with a first class honours from The Slade School of Fine Art, where she also won the Lynn Painter’s Stainers Scholarship during her studies.
Florence has had three solo shows in the past two years and has exhibited her work widely throughout the UK and abroad. The largest show of her work was in 2019 at the Saatchi Gallery where eight large scale paintings were displayed in an exhibition titled Kaleidoscope. The paintings from that show remain part of Charles Saatchi’s collection. Florence has taken part in a few residences too, her most recent being in September 2019 in LA, which resulted in a show of the work at the Cabin. Florence’s work revolves around the poetry of the everyday, taking elements of her life whether it be the studio, the clothes rail in her bedroom or even the toilet in the bathroom. Florence depicts these objects into almost abstract forms giving them the life and vitality that she sees in them. Her work is extremely textured and layered, this occurs due to the constant repainting in almost all of her works, collage also plays a vital role in this process.

About the postcard artworks:
These three pieces for AOAP are all based on chairs i've been surrounded by recently, depicted in a variety of media. Working on this small scale was definitely a challenge, for them to work there was a constant process of painting out and painting back in to resolve the end images of the works.
