“Candy Girl”

Following on from the Angel Series, Nina uses images of her own face and naked or partially clothed body, as the basis for the design. She adds swirling patterns of pastel colours, in pinks, greens and yellows against geometric and stylised backgrounds. From a technical point of view her most advanced work, these images are produced using a complicated under glaze process, of which she is very proud. The images are a homage to one of Nina’s heroines, Madonna, who uses her body and her self image in a fluid and imaginative way that Nina greatly admires. The images Nina has created reflect the exchangeable fantasies of women, and represent their attempts to express both their beauty, and their complex identities within their daily lives.
