Floria Tosca’s practice – which encompasses painting, drawing and animation – illuminates the dualities of existence; strength and fragility, the beautiful and grotesque, life and death. Tosca was raised in a rural setting that nourished her communion with the natural world. The artist possesses a sensitivity to our impact upon the environment, as well as nature’s place in our psyche. This complex relationship of the organic and human footprint often plays out in her compositions with what is mythical, bizarre or overlooked.
