Our friend and Hawaiian native Nicole Naone recently made her debut solo at Honolulu’s Human Imagination. Entitled Mass, the exhibition gives us a look at the classic female form through subtle compositions which Nicole hand molded in foam and plaster. Diverse in her mediums, we also caught sight of smooth illustrations and sculptures cast in bronze. A very sweet debut showcasing what the full time artist & part time model has achieved since we last time we saw her at this year’s POW WOW.
