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.
