Flora Assumpção works with drawing, engraving, painting, photography, objects and installations. She deals with themes related to the natural and the fantastic, the supernatural, in an attempt to reflect on the actions of the human in front of the natural world. Nature appears in the form of animals (especially snakes and other reptiles) and natural phenomena (such as fog, storms, hurricanes, sea and others) under a mysterious unexpected fantastic atmosphere, brought from legends, myths and folktales of Brazil and the world. This is a device or a metaphor to approach from other subjects beyond the fictional situation presented, exactly like the fairytales also do. The human being appears in the visual relationship established between the body of the animal and the modus operandi of natural phenomena with machines created by mankind, in allusion to the idea of the inevitability of artificial machine to copy nature's mechanisms, because all the principles were created before by nature.
