Description

"I wanted to create a quiet abstract piece. I hope it brings Zen to any space."
-Milena Martinez about "Modern Blue"

"I created this piece to bring brightness into any space."
-Milena Martinez about "Whipped Cream"

“These contemporary works are abstract but imbued with personal identity. The style stands independent of worldly suggestions of representation and form. Here, there is an emphasis on color, composition, and emotion. The work deconstructs the bone-colored canvas with layers of paint that seem to gravitate toward the center, all while attracting natural light. The colors evoke personal experience. From the calm of the azure and cobalt blues to the nostalgic and tender bubblegum pinks, connected by notes of lavender, and swaths of bold canary yellow fading into a soft jade green, the colors create a rhythm that reminds us of the balance we yearn for in our lives.”
- Carley Nolan, student at Sotheby’s Institute of Art, M.A. Art Business, New York.
