About

Florence Hutchings‘ work is dedicated to the poetry and beauty of seemingly common space and life situations: Aspects of her everyday life, studio settings, insights into her laundry room or living room, which she depicts in a pastose but also two-dimensional painting style that emphasizes the colour contrasts. In this way, everyday life and seemingly banalities become extraordinary compositions and colour events.

On closer examination, Hutchings‘ and Romeril‘s works seem to echo more than 100 years of expressive painting traditions of the Fauvists, such as Derain, Matisse and Vlaminck, over Braque, Picasso, but also Max Beckmann and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. Besides the conscious as well as unconscious references to a Modernism – that was criticized as „wild“ or „neo-primitivist“ a century ago and ultimately celebrated after all – Hutchings‘ and Romeril‘s "Bad Paintings", with their loose style of painting and their sometimes computer- screen-like flatness, prove to be extremely contemporary. In addition to their art historical references, a fresh, almost anarchic humour in dealing with their famous role models and ancestors who have long been part of art history is unmistakable in these paintings.

Florence Hutchings (b. 1996) graduated with first class honours from The Slade School of Fine Art in 2019, where during her studies, she was awarded with the Lynn Painter’s Stainers Scholarship. Her most recent solo shows were: The Place I Call Home, at Union Gallery, London (2020), Setting Arrangement, at Delphian Gallery, London (2019) and The Poetry of Everyday, at Beers, London (2019). In 2019 Saatchi Gallery held a group exhibition titled Kaleidoscope where eight large scale paintings were displayed and remain as part of Charles Saatchi’s collection.
