Nini Lion has always been intrigued by figures—their character and attitude.
Her abstract paintings are based on life drawings seen through the lens of color, line, and texture. As the light shifts during the day or night, the viewer is drawn to other planes and images, offering alternate focal points.
Nini’s sculptures continue this exploration of figuration, suggesting something elemental, open to multiple interpretations. In her new sculpture series, Adagio with Strings, hand built and carved figures move in response to air currents, as delicate mobiles in a slow dance.
In all of her work, Nini uses color and shape, line and gesture, to animate these figures and forms–to infuse them with the energy of life.
