Flor Minor (Queretaro 1961); she studied at the National School of Painting, Sculpture and Engraving “La Esmeralda” (1978-1980). She begins an investigation about the use of unconventional materials and supports in plastic creation at the Plastic Research and Experimentation Center of the National Institute of Fine Arts, being a founding member of the Neographic Workshop led by the teacher Oliverio Hinojosa.

Among the main early but persistent interests in Flor Minor’s work are: the location of the line in space, the relationship between geometric elements and the human body, making the two-dimensional plane evident through the lines and strokes in the space that creates the illusion of figures with volume and perspective, treating the human body in the Renaissance way as an artistic way of representing that leads to knowledge, analyzing the attitudes of man in the city, among other characteristics. This neoclassicist way of representing allowed Flor Minor to distinguish herself and develop from the beginning with high plastic quality and expressive force.
