an uncontrollable preoccupation with representing what is in front

Built upon the pillars of life drawing, the domestic and repetition, artist Florence Hutchings paints still life’s that depict everyday settings. In fact, her interest in drawing and painting objects doesn't just come from the things themselves, but also from the spaces between them; "the negative space they create." Hutchings pushes her subject matters (including shoes, clothes, shops, or cars) to their limit, ending up in works that reflect objects in their most abstracted forms, by repeating them and exploring them in a vast array of settings, compositions, and colours. "I like when people respond to my paintings with questions like “is that a mermaid tail?” or “is that a tent”, Hutchings mentions. The Kentish-born artist deals with depicting something in all the possible ways, but a thorough look at any of her work reveals how intrigued she is with her surroundings. We went to see Florence at her studio, where she made us know her interest in representing what is in front of her.

painting desks from her desk space

"My studio is usually a mess" artist Florence Hutchings says as we come into the space located at the Slade School of Fine Art, London, "For me an exciting studio space is vital for my work, it’s what drives me to make more work." While the symmetrically curved room contains a great volume of interesting items (be that a Pierre Bonnard book, remains of unused paint that have solidified into sculptures, or a stack of rough drawings on Fabriano journals) it is well-supplied with furniture. Here, the third year painting student depicts chairs, tables, architectural elements, or interior configurations in the form of sketches, collages or paintings, many which are assembled and drawn from life directly at her studio. Most of the works are fixed to walls, allowing her repeated patterns to feed onto one another. Arranged in different sections, an initial table presents a display of tube paints, while the artist uses a drawing table to work cleanly on. Hutchings is drawn to drawing from life: from the desk in her studio she paints desks. And for the last 3 years, it's all came to life here.
