Paintings have a very special place in my heart. Maybe it is because I remember my mom painting her canvases when I was a kid. She loved when she had time to paint. Maybe it is because with so many different mediums out there, I'm a sucker for the good ole oils and canvas combo. I still get amazed with the talent and creativity artists have to create such exquisite artwork using traditional methods. Yes, I do love technology and all the possibilities it brings. But traditional mediums still make my heart race. I was totally blown away when I saw Soey Milk's work. Her paintings depict strong characters, beautiful colors and shapes and lots of details. It is a mix of delicate and mysterious, bold and right in your face. Striking pale faces against a sea of colors and details deliver artworks that will get your attention and imagination. There is no way you won't get carried away by the amazing women Soey portrays on her paintings. These women seem strong and fragile, unstoppable and and beautiful.
Soey Milk was born in Seoul in 1989 and moved to California in 2000. She is a recent graduate of Art Center in Pasadena, CA. Soey lives and works in Los Angeles with a human, eleven chickens and a shiba inu. The artist has a upcoming solo exhibition, “Inflorescence,” opening at Corey Helford Gallery in LA on September 8th. So if you are in the Los Angeles area do yourself a favor and visit her exhibition. ;)
