CHRISTIAN FLORA - VISIONARY ART GALLERY Artist of the Month for March 2011

Our Artist of the Month MARCH 2011 is
Picture


Christian Flora

The artist was born in 1972 in Klagenfurt, Carinthia and studied
at the Viennese university for applied art, under Prof. Wolfgang Hutter and Prof. Wolfgang Herzig.
Characteristic for the work of the artist is the trisection of space, figure and a highly structured, made of indefinable material, artificially formed environment.
Mechanical elements are integrated into organic designed worlds – kept in elegant chromatics and orchestrated in precision work.
The mostly female characters, brought to existence in Flora’s pictures seem to intertwine with their environment.
They explore the artificial universe with a natural certainty, still acting alienated though.
Very often these characters seem like a hybrid between man and machine – not knowing what they should expect from these threatening worlds.
Significant in Flora’s work are his preciseness and a fastidious line of strokes.
Christian Flora lives and works in Vienna and Carinthia. His work can be found in private and public collections.
