Explosions of Color

Nancy Carolina Flores was born in San Salvador, El Salvador in 1983. At the young age of 3, she immigrated to the United States and lived in New York City for a short time. After leaving the city behind, she relocated to Maryland where she went on to attend the University of Maryland and received her Bachelors of Art in Art Studio in 2006. While at the University of Maryland, she also studied biology and became fascinated with the biology of flora. Due to the scientific aspects of biology and the intricate workings of how life fits together, some of her work looks vastly different. It almost looks like two distinct painters when some of her paintings are displayed side-by-side. Her paintings range from abstract enlarged blossoms to complicated representational pieces.

She has been drawing and painting since she was very young and has evolved as a vivid painter over the years. Artomatic 2012 is the first art show that she has displayed her work, besides the student gallery at UMD. Her inspiration comes from various painters but most notably, the revolutionary flowers painted by Georgia O’Keeffe and the bright pop-style of Andy Warhol. Ms. Flores tends to veer towards strong bright colors and tries the capture the essence and beauty of each of her subjects no matter what she is painting. In her free time, she spends countless hours reading and wandering through the city looking for new ideas to capture on a canvas.

Artomatic 2012

My Exhibit is all about standing out in a crowded room. It's hard to miss the splashes of color on the canvas and that's the intention. My exhibit focuses on closeup representations of various flowers, either realistically or abstractly.

Floor: 8 Area: SW Section: 11 Space ID: 080314 Basically, head southwest off the elevators on the 8th floor and find the huge open room in that direction. My exhibit is a small room off of section 11 where the bright colors dance before your eyes. I will be there opening night May 18th! and Meet the Artist night June 2nd! Check back for other dates.
