Perfused rouge stains the rendered femme silhouettes of artist Christina Nicola's muses.


The radiant color oscillates from conveying the blissfulness of romance to the agony of a punctured seeping heart, as a double entendre of how the femme physique is celebrated for its beauty while objectified for sexual subjugation.  


Nicola's visual language reads as an allegory of the tales of femme-identifying figures of historical context while drawing its lineage to the contemporary muse.
