Nina Pandolfo: Feelings
Feelings is the gallery debut for Brazilian artist Nina Pandolfo at Lazarides. Her ‘Spice Angels’ series feature lively patterned, vibrantly coloured canvases and sculptures.
Childhood memories and passion for history of high fashion, Japanese trends and steampunk art are palpable references to Pandolfo’s girls. For Feelings Nina went ‘wild on mixtures, the fusion of the imaginary with the real, romantic with the sensual’ to create a variety of outfits from lacy burlesque corsets, to science fiction inspired styles.
‘Each one of the girls is more mature and striking, with a strong personality of her own which differs from the others. It isn’t the way it was when we were kids, we all wanted to dress the same way to create the feeling of belonging to the same tribe.’
