1996- Artist CV
Florence Hutchings was born in Kent, UK in 1996. She graduated with a first class honors from The Slade School of Fine Art in London in 2019, where she also won the Lynn Painter’s Stainers Scholarship during her studies. Hutchings has exhibited 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. Narrative Minds is his first exhibition with Asia Art Center.
Hutchings’ 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. Hutchings 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.
