Biography

Florence Nerisson

My inspiration generally comes from many different things, such as the pages of a magazine, books, photos, news stories, my previous paintings, or paintings by other artists. It all belongs to the sphere of reality and is always guided by my emotions.


Perhaps because of this process, my paintings may appear at first glance to have elements that are easy to "read." But if the eye and the soul are willing to be transported and find other points of entry, then viewers will find a perspective or meaning that interests or stimulates them.


These real elements are often fragments of nature (plants or flowers) that are ways to carry myself, and the viewer, towards a dream-like and meditative world, a world free of any known norms. Once in the canvas, viewers can project their own fantasies or illusions. And the interpretation that seemed simple at the beginning becomes more nuanced, more complex.


I am careful to create several levels of reading to capture the viewer's eye no matter where it enters. This allows viewers who want to escape or revitalise themselves to release their own emotions. Each person can start and stop wherever they like.
