Florence Nief is a self-taught painter, visual artist and ideologist. She lives and works in Thionville, North east of France
In her studio, she captures every tiny murmur of everyday life – eschewing indifference,
incoherence and any distracting digressions.
“In my painting, colour drives emotions and creativity. It lives within me. Its power and
meekness give birth to the kaleidoscope of life in all its shapes and spaces”, explains the artist, who lives her colours passionately, instinctively and spontaneously.
Whether dazzling, haunting, dominating, figurative or abstract, celebrating the joy of life or expressing the cruelty of life’s twists and turns, colour lies at the heart of her work.
And this colour is like a window to the soul: a blend of organic rhythm, matter and form, in its
many guises this colour is allowed to comment on our society, forming an anthem for life.
The nature of Florence Nief’s creative process is based on the appropriation and
subversion of pre-existent objects, everyday realities and various materials.
Florence Nief breathes new life into plexiglass, polyurethane foam and other discarded materials,
creating monumental but ethereal installations.
Her work casts a critical gaze on our contemporary society, questioning issues such as resilience,
collective identity, individualism, the status of women and discrimination.
