Nadezda: “Pins & Petals”

Nadezda Pins & Petals solo exhibition at Haven Gallery

Nadezda [Nad’e:zhda] is a Russia-born artist based in the Bay Area of California. She has contributed to creative projects across various genres – feature film, theatre, illustration and fine art. Heavily influenced by theatrical performance and an extensive background in costume and character design for film, her artwork is primarily about storytelling that portrays the human condition, an intimate window that exposes the inner world of her subjects: “I paint mirrors that reflect not just the body’s exterior, but the subconscious hidden inward landscapes of human nature. When people walk by my paintings, I want them to feel as if they walked by a mirror hanging on the wall and stop in their tracks, recognizing the familiar. I want them to see the true reflections of their inner selves – raw, vulnerable, playful, animalistic, vicious, childish, pure, free. They don’t have to admit that likeness out loud to others, they don’t even have to admit it to themselves, but I hope the emotional hook will pierce their modern-tempered skin and rip a small hole, oozing with their long forgotten desires and dreams.”
