Latino Center of Art and Culture presents «Angels of No Mercy», an exhibition by artist Alda Nuvia.
“Angels of No Mercy” is an exploration of the warrior within women. Through art deco style patterning rendered in metallic graphite and ink, armor and masks are created and morph with the flesh of the figure, both shielding and canonizing the Angel. The work is about the many layers women wear in order to survive daily life, layers that shift and change, constantly moving to expose and protect, wearing the heavy, stone-like city scapes that crown their heads with ease.
Alda Nuvia is an artist from the South Bay. Her “Angels of No Mercy” series is heavily influenced by Art Deco artists such as Tamara de Lepicka and Rene Jules Lalique, as well as architects Claude Beelman and his Eastern Columbia building in LA and Albert Kahn’s Fisher Building in Detroit. She currently resides in Sacramento, CA.
