"Two magenta bodies confronting each other and being separated by a vertical line. The body on the right has an extra confrontation with a black shadow behind it, on the shoulders and its head. In the following paintings, the place will take more form and will be turned away from the magenta. " - Floris

The artist is influenced by Egon Schiele, Francis Bacon, Fred Deux


La dance des Ecorchées is a series of seven paintings. Each painting embodies a unique image but when layered on top of each other, like playing cards, together they form one. 

Ecorché literally means pealing off and is often used to describe our emotions. On every painting, more skin is peeled off and more flesh appears. Magenta is the color of the flesh, of my vulnerability, of my emotions.
