Vanitas 13

Danni Shinya Luo's female forms breathe with a sensuality and intuition that will shatter your preconceptions about her chosen medium: watercolor. Shinya's fluid and organic figures are quite lovely, full of feminine mystery and romance, but also of empowerment.

No mere pin-ups, her sexy rolemodels inhabit a dreamy multiplex of situations and vocations, making them their own.

Her debut exhibition was a mediation on beauty and psychological tension, while her sophomore outing indulged femininity in visions of figures and wild creatures. In Vanitas 13, she examines fecundity in the guises of mortality and grace. Vanitas represents the concept that every earthly being, beautiful or otherwise, eventually succumbs to change and death. In this show, the artist combines what she does best, the female figure, with her choice of Vanitas symbols.

At first glance, viewers may see only an enchanting painting, full of femininity-but as they revisit each piece, layers of hidden meaning will reveal voluminous interpretations.
