FLORENCIA BÖHTLINGK

Florencia Böhtlingk’s painting belongs to an archaic but still in force Amazonian tradition, which is communicated in South America through its rivers. In her paintings, landscape appears as the result of a desire for appropriation. Psychedelic by the weeds and near the birds. From the Río de la Plata, in terms of its constructivist affiliation and very close to Street Art for its layers of color.

Florencia Böhtlingk (b.1966, Buenos Aires) does not paint by memory but what is in front of her: a boat, a meeting with her sisters, the jungle of Misiones, the offerings to Iemanjá on the banks of the Río de la Plata…These visual experiences are transferred to paper when the experience it is alive, like a jump from intention to act and starting from a loose geometry to approach the motive; using color as a trigger.

Böhtlingk studied at Escuela de Bellas Artes Prilidiano Pueyrredón and Escuela Ernesto de la Cárcova in Buenos Aires. She attended workshop by artists Jorge Demirján, Luis Felipe Noé and Gabriel Messil. Between 1994-1995, Fundación Proa awarded her a scholarship to attend Guillermo Kuitca´s workshop.
