ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Florencia S.M. Brück was born in Argentina, daughter of german and italian ancestors and raised between Milan, Buenos Aires and Washington D.C., a visual artist whose practice includes painting, film, photography, sculpture, programming languages, sound and video.

She is perhaps most widely known for her vibrant pliage sculpted paintings from her 2019 installation during the Venice Art Biennale. There are several recurring motifs in her work, from transforming plains to the matrix of time that underlines all universes. Her enduring fascination with time, death and parallel universes led to her installation NDA (Near Death Experience) where a visual algorithm splits the human shape into two spectrums to conceive her own NDA experience by drowning when she was only 5 years old. The installation is captivating – the recognizable figure becomes transformed in a timeless spiritual moment. Her recurring exploration of the articulate plains and the natural system of webs can be found on the “Tension and Interlude” pliage works, where the canvas is consider as a material unto itself. The artist folds the canvas before dripping large blocks of black or color ink on them; she would then unfold them to see what patterns emerge.

“I seek to navigate the confluence of art, awareness and technology. To express and question the tension that exists in the dialogue between the human, the artificial and nature. I believe that it’s possible to attain a more profound knowledge of nature than that provided by empirical means, and much of the work I do is inspired by the search for that spiritual knowledge.”

She is a member of the AAMNBA, Asociación Amigos del Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Buenos Aires, Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation (SRGF). Florencia is also involved in helping to develop the art community; she has donated paintings to help in the fundraising of POMO’s Art Center in Argentina.
