Thoughts - line drawing woman figure with scorched dandelion

$640

About

Interior design paintings. The artworks were done with watercolor and ink on watercolor paper 300g. The works are 11 by 14 inches in size, framed (black) with a styrene face on a double mat board in black and beige with sizes 16 by 20 in. This is the "Many thoughts, one head" series. The series started with the picture of a figure with its hands framing the head - but without an actual head, as if hands were holding all the thoughts. Later on the head became objects - metaphors (soap, bubble, mine, alarm clock, etc.) as well as planets. Each person is an individual planet, with their own thoughts and satellites - companions. Artworks from this series got 3rd place at the 2020 American Art Awards, juried by 25 best galleries and museums in America, with artist from 63 countries, in category: minimalism. As a child, Mila was enrolled in art school and put in a class with children that were notably more mature in age and technique. Instead of just completing the task, this peculiar child would pay particular attention to details. Her teachers neglected these creative teachers, and, without proper support, her yet vulnerable talent never got a chance to reveal itself. Mila had dropped out of art school and put her art practice aside, but not the art itself. She graduated from Moscow State University with a degree in History and Theory of Art, as an Art Critic. During her university years, she surrounded herself by many artists, from who she frugally gathered more knowledge and experience in the craft of creation. Later she will take on the art of restoration. Mila's mentor, from her practice times, would have loved to see her pursue this career. However, now, owning a gallery of her own and being a mother of two, Mila has finally decided to go beyond her comfort zone. She is yet to find her one true voice on canvas. However, such a long road of self-discovery set her on the right track; talent must go through a series of obstacles to shine at its brightest.
