Nina Pandolfo: Feelings

Lazarides Rathbone

Friday 1st of June 2012 to Thursday 5th of July 2012

Featuring Nina Pandolfo

Feelings marks Brazilian artist Nina Pandolfo's London gallery debut with her "Spice Angels" series, overflowing with lively patterned, vibrantly coloured canvases and sculptures.

Making a departure from her childlike, timid girls with glassy questioning eyes, her beauty-conscious and daring characters are more sophisticated with elongated forms and a deeper and more contemplative gaze. The history of high fashion, Japanese trends and steampunk art have all contributed to the style and invention of Pandolfo's girls, which don a variety of outfits from lacy burlesque corsets to science fiction inspired trends, alluding to both a retro and futuristic fads.

Whilst steering her fictional creations towards a more developed stage with plentiful references to the world of fashion, Pandolfo continues to seek inspiration from a certain playful sensitivity and treasured childhood memories.
