‘Life and art are inseparable; hence art is the transmission of the state of our being.  My work reflects tension between forces of stillness and quickness, in which, I view the world, a mystical experience that imparts a sense of unity within its creative process.  As art is not limited by reason, so is the abstraction, a pure art form in bliss of freedom. The predominant direction of my art compels out of its own individual need, with its unique voice and dialogue.  In the psyche of self-conscious, Self-expression, lifetime experiences become possible to disclose their function, nourished by instinct; living imageries explode beyond their limitations ’.

 

By Dr. Salvatore Russo Ph.D. Art Critic, Italy.

Vortices chromatic join the power of the sign and going to be the new object of the narration. The works of Milanda de Mont visual narratives are made via a genius of thought that explores the mind and shows its synthesis. The refined purity tract combines suspended moments, exalting in dense colours and pure colours, contrasts of signs that generate income, even when they are declined tone on tone with undeniable elegance. The nuances, contrasts of light and shade, the choice of colours are the result of a penetrating attention to the reality of the recognizable. Confessions shout. Will the soul. Whispers of the psyche. The main features of a painting that has Milanda de Mont its greatest interpreter. The artist has been able to create a new visual alphabet whose symbolism refers conceptually to the complexity of the human intellect.
