“Lanina’s characters, mostly female in gender, are made of parts that are not supposed to go together. They act out absurd situations in a somewhat blasé, carefree and humorous manner. These characters are the artist’s own projections of nonsensical events and their consequences. Their malformed features and parts illustrate internalized trauma and torment while still engaging in the life-affirming celebration of feminine power and its connection to the mysterious, the beautiful, and the sensual. Their grotesque nature represents the complexity of the human character, which is at once bewildering, perplexing and fascinating.” ~NYSG
