ABOUT

Florence Montmare is an artist whose creative search has drawn her across the globe. Florence was born in Vienna and raised in Stockholm by Swedish and Greek parents, she graduated with an MBA in Innovation and Design Management from Linnaeus University in Sweden, and subsequently worked for several years as a creative consultant in corporate advertising. Seeking challenge, she took $200 and a single suitcase with her to New York City in 1995, transitioning simultaneously from the corporate to the fine art sphere. In the following years, she traveled South America with only her Nikon F-301, a backpack full of TRI-X, and a diary, and worked on creative collaborations with international creative agencies and renowned artists such as Sam Samore and Robert Blake. After graduating from the International Center of Photography in 2000, Florence established the image and design company Flow Image, and in 2006 she launched her latest venture, Floressence Photography studio, in New York. She currently creates and directs creative content for print and online media, exhibitions, television and film, while lecturing and showing at Universities and galleries internationally. Most of Florence’s work is process based - from concept to performance. Her writing, photography, video, performance, and installations are all utilized, exploring the themes of identity, concepts of beauty, intimacy and disconnection. Her fragmented stories function as a catalyst for the viewer’s personal fantasies, a open door into one’s own self discovery.
