"First there's the look. The first look. The pose, the facial line, the mouth. This is where the love story begins. I transcribe beauty in a few minimalist lines to reveal the signature, the DNA; the essence and the essential. Then, the flowers and color are an introduction to a more intimate approach. This is love foreplay. The flower is an important female symbol, it expresses the strong and fragile, but above all unique woman. I borrow Frida Kahlo's wreath of flowers to crown brave women and project Frida into all women.
As for colour, it is an aesthetic tool, but also a reflection of my mood, the colour of feelings. And then I depict female suffering. I wanted to give a face, a thousand faces, to the moods. I want to have a benevolent look at each other's history, each suffering is legitimate and our pride or the other's look should not be an excuse to minimize their pain. This is irresistible, invincible and unconditional love. I unveil the woman of her whole being to make you fall in love, from her lines to her soul." - Florina
