Hollywood based artist Soey Milk deals in the soft destruction of perfect beauty. Milk’s paintings are delicate and photo-real, her work is expertly rendered images of young women posed in moments of vague sensuality.
There’s a natural delicacy to her approach, yet her gentle brushwork is fractured with brave dabs of texture. Not one work encompasses all that she can do as an artist, it’s a subtle theme to her art that creates a consistent world. Milk has an eye for the quiet and calm and the techniques used change from piece to piece.
Milk’s figures have a ghost-like awareness — her subjects display an understanding that escapes the viewer, but these women are inside of a shared world of Milk’s creation.
