"In her philosophy, Nerina Lascelles starts with the proposition that the role of the artist is to depict the sacred. It is the sacred things in the art of other traditions and cultures that primarily inspires Lascelles' art practice.
Nerina’s most recent influences have been drawn from travel to Japan. These paintings consist of a pastiche of origami paper and fragments of kimonos along with gold and silver leaf, acrylic paint, bitumen and encaustic wax. All these materials have been combined to create works that reflect the antique objects that inspire them while standing on their own as objects of beauty”
