The work of Nina Surel, a mixed media artist born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and based in Miami, Florida, looks like a cross between a fashion editorial and a painting from 19th century Romanticism. Combining portraits and landscapes, her collages explore what it means to be a modern woman. Ironically enough, Nina Surel looks to the past to do so.

Beautifully embellished with shimmering beads and sequins, Nina Surel's artworks are a treat for the eyes. Specifically addressing repressed desires and complicated lives, the forest in which each image takes place in provides a sanctuary for such subjects and feelings. By bringing the past to the present, Nina Surel also shows how timeless certain issues are while instilling in women of all ages a level of camaraderie.
