Flor Kent was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, and subsequently lived in USA, Bahrain and UK. Since early on, she had a strong interest in both science and art and pursued both careers, doctor and artist, committed to developing them academically and professionally over the years. The effect of this symbiotic relationship between art and science has enriched her skills, informed her work and given an added dimension to both of her professional practices. In UV dependent Iris After the Flood, elements of nature combine with man made materials to offer the viewer a visual feast of colour, light and shapes.In her nominal Für das Kind installation at Liverpool Street Station, she combined challenging science inert gas technology with art to deliver a unique and complex response to a unique and complex subject in history.

Kent’s Für das Kind Project was pivotal in bringing the then relatively unknown historical subject of the Kindertransports into the public spotlight. It also contributed greatly in the gathering and documentation of information and materials for academic study and research, and it served as subject matter graduate student’s dissertations. The project’s many offshoots include the Für das Kind Kindertransport Objects Collection at the Imperial War Museum in London, the Für das Kind Museum in Vienna, traveling exhibitions, collaborations with other artists,and inevitably the eventual appearance of controversial derivative works.

Kent focuses in site-specific projects but enjoys creating a wide range of studio based work. In both, she oftentimes combines a diverse practice of installation, sculpture, painting, etching and drawing to challenge the subjects, and respond to spaces. She continues to explore the issues of science, behaviour, nature, history, culture and inextricably politics, translating her observations into visual form.

Kent’s works are in private collections and public spaces worldwide.
