“I’m introducing a new character in some of my paintings for this show. It brings a certain kind of attitude and energy into the frame which challenges my figures and raises questions of power structures. Often, automatically when seeing a strong, maybe even a bit scary looking animal, one assumes their gender to be male, which is an interesting thought, when exploring this character. Like always, I enjoy playing with those kinds of stereotypes and leave the viewer with a grin on their face. Apart from this, I’m also taking a trip back to my roots by painting vegetation and patterns. The many changes in materials over the years allowed me to now combine all my technical abilities and push the canvas surface to another level. Surface, texture, symbolism and character building are fundamental aspects that come to mind, when reflecting on the new paintings.” – Florine Imo
 

“I like to reel the viewer in... bright colors, noisy patterns, at first seemingly perfect looking figures, and often a paradise-like setting. These paintings often play with the viewers judgement of different aspects of femininity. I paint the female form, making my girls strong, yet carrying a known simultaneous sense of fragility. Often, they let out an energetic “creepy smile”, but they couldn’t care less about what you think of them. These figures are both ugly and beautiful; taking the viewer for a ride with their animalistic features. Nowadays, my paintings focus on the relationships between figures and the aspects of their complex character. Some paintings are allowed to be pleasant, however, others tend to propel a deep sense of mysterious intensity. The universe that I have created lives through my figures, never sticking with one overall mood or surrounding, while always exploring new and various forms of spirit embodiment. My paintings portray serenity, strength, the bond between women, chase of perfection, and the judgement that comes along with it. I like to create works that aren’t too obvious and can be overshadowed by colors, patterns and perfect skin. Sometimes, I like to paint girls going about their day, not being aware or giving a shit if you watch them.” – Florine Imo
