Jazmina Cininas + Lucy Hardie: Femme Fatale

The femme fatale is an archetype of literature and art: a mysterious, seductive woman, and her ability to entrance and hypnotise her victim was in the earliest stories seen as being literally supernatural.
Jazmina Cininas re-imagines the female werewolf throughout history in exquisite, reduction linocut portraits drawing on early modern woodcuts, Baltic folklore, Victorian gothic literature, comics and contemporary cinema.
Lucy Hardie thinks of herself as a modern romantic and her meticulous ink drawings reflect influences of the Symbolists and Pre-Raphaelites, however inspiration is also derived from natural phenomena, fairy tales and Integral Philosophy.
