” No right, no wrong. A flurry of marks, molded shapes of color, analogies to fragments of life around. A conversation, a dialogue….between you, me, and the work. Curiosity piqued, time spent, and space to struggle”

Florance’s art is based on a multi-disciplinary approach and her “Eco-centric” vision engages a variety of materials and formats. It has ranged from a large-scale international environmental installation that took her to Sofia, Bulgaria to a community-based environmental art project that connected art and nature for alternative education youths. Her drawings, paintings and printmaking techniques reflect the expression of a deep curiosity about the complex processes of our natural world and the contemplation of the challenging issues surrounding them today. She has exhibited her work internationally in events such as the “Women in Art” exhibition in Beijing, China and the “Global Focus” exhibition in Moscow, Russia. In addition, she has participated in numerous local and regional exhibitions. Her work has been featured in venues such as The Atrium Art Gallery, USM, and the Center for Maine Contemporary Arts, in Rockport. Recent exhbitions include the CWA 86th Annual National Juried Exhibit at the Slater Museum in Norwich CT (Jurors’ Award), the Rocky Mountain National Watermedia exhibiton in Golden, CO and at the Harolow Gallery, 21st Annual Juried exhibiition in Hallowell ME, (Jurors’ Choice Award).
