Extended Sculpture by Misha Milovanovich
Misha Milovanovich’s work fuses a variety of motifs and sources from Dada, Surrealism, Bossa Nova, ‘primitive’ art and post-feminist theory.
Her work is always spirited, humorous and bursting with delight.. Her totemic sculptures reflect a joyful kind of appropriation and reference-making. Characterised by a profusion of exuberant colors and shapes Misha blurs boundaries, between abstraction and figuration, painting and sculpture, flatness and solidity, form and theory, revelling in the fertile soil between opposites. In her most recent work Misha’s unique aesthetic absorbs influences that ancient and mythological. These are anthropomorphic creations that exude warmth and humour and honour Miro, Picasso, Louise Bourgeois and Noguchi. Her work relates to our connection with the natural world, offering a tactile optimism in the face of digital absurdity. Everything connects to her biography - lived experiences, learned technique, jokes, memories and eulogies. Her latest work is a collaboration with Gunter Rhoder, her trusted friend and accomplice.
