#CARVENSEENBY Florent Groc

For its Advent Calendar, Carven gave carte blanche to 20 artists, each of whom was asked to revisit a key item in the 2018 cruise collection. For the *** skirt, Serge Ruffieux commissioned Florent Groc, a landscape painter whose work oscillates between the abstract and the figurative. Who are you ?
I am a French visual artist. I like Marseille and its hills, its light, its blue sky, its swimming pools and its diving.
What does this pre-Christmas period mean to you ?
It's one of the most exciting time of the year! This is the period during which I wait for days to gain more light. Here in the south, we have a tradition that shows the same hopefulness : we plant wheat in three saucers, hoping that it will be the most beautiful possible and that the coming year will be fertile.
What would be your ultimate artistic dream for the year 2018 ?
A week-end in Rome with David Hockney!
