Milly Martionou is an amazing artist currently living in Athens, Greece with a degree in Fine Arts painting at the University of Hertfordshire in North London. Her work involves a series of “layers” on both literal and figurative levels, flirting with abstract expressionism. Using techniques known as “dripping” or “action painting” often combined with “collage” style. Milly works under the obvious influence of the American painters Jackson Pollock and Joan Mitchell, but she communicates her own psyche with a completely personal writing which, unlike that of Pollock, sends an intense message of optimism.
This is a forceful work that mutates under different lighting levels due to the technical positioning of glitters and various crystals. Mysterious landscapes are alternated with dreamy images and lure us in a metaphysical journey to the country of dream and unconsciousness.
