Don’t miss Swedish artist Stina Persson's upcoming solo show “Perfectly Flawed”, at New York’s Gallery Hanahou. Nordstjernan met with the lovely artist from Lund a couple of years ago, when she had her show “Immacolata & her Friends” at the same gallery, and fell in love with her Sicilian beauties.

We can’t wait to see what Persson is up to this time. The former commercial illustrator has found herself conforming to trends of narrowing hips and ever-smoother skin by digitally altering her original watercolors, often without prompting from a client: edges have gradually become cleaner, features more defined, and the painterly more photographic.

For her newest work, the artist asked herself what would happen if she didn't scan, didn't retouch, and didn't work digitally at all. The result of that question is a series of more than 30 new works on paper, watercolor pieces of women with running paint, unconventional color choices, and skewed perspective - imperfections that are natural, unsettling, and beautiful. Stina Persson’s “Perfectly Flawed” opens on September 9, 7-9 pm. For more information: Gallery Hanahou, 611 Broadway, Suite 730, New York City,
