…Starting from a lyrical vision made up of sweeping generous curves in which supple shapes vibrated, the artist nowadays directs her creation towards a stylisation and purification of her subjects. It is never of question of geometrics, however, in this interplay of straight lines which cut across each other and multiply. This arrangement of perpendiculars carefully avoids the dryness of overworked tracings, and thus preserves the importance of warmth and spontaneity.

This impression of precious objects –like a ritual image coming from the depths of time– emerges even more strongly from artist Flore Joris’s latest compositions.

These extremely stylised horsemen, run through and heightened by magical signs, evoke both tradition and novelty in their interpretation of a theme which is “as old as the world”…
