Misha Milovanovich’s work combines a variety of motifs, and sources of inspiration from Dadaism, Surrealism, Bossa Nova to primitive arts and poetry of Spike Milligan.
Misha’s work is always spirited, humorous and filled with joy.
Characterised by vivid colour, optical movement and energetic visual cadences, Misha's visual work fuses a diverse repertoire of images and forms. Her playful totemic sculptures reflect a kind of prism which defines a new form of appropriation and reference-making.
Misha's work blurs boundaries — between abstraction and figuration, painting and sculpture, flatness and dimensionality, formalism and conceptualism — demonstrating the richness of the middle ground that exists between opposites.
In her most recent work, Misha’s anthropomorphic creations exude warmth and humour, and are an homage to some of her artistic heroes: Miro, Picasso, David Smith, Elizabeth Murray, Louise Bourgeois and Noguchi.
