Moveable wallpapers are modular paintings that can be combined to create a wallpaper effect. Once the hanging system is installed on your wall, you can vary the images in order to create different colour combinations. The patterns are handpainted and finished with epoxy resin. The colour will change with time because of the sensibilty of epoxy resin to light. This is a wanted effect showing the alteration of synthetic material with time.
Nina Levett's work is about femininity: "When the porno queen Annie Sprinkle showed her most intimate inner self (her cervix) to a world-wide audience in the mid 90s, pink dots were icons of unconditional femininity, touching themes as self determination, exploitation and fertility. In Nina Levett's work phases of women with gigantic breasts and pink dots were followed by organic creeping floral designs and streams of sperm, that cover the modular wallpanels in neat ordered rows and seem to be calm visitors of a shopping mall. Components of a coded graphic expression that create decorative patterns."
