IVA MILANOVA

Spectrum Miami
December 5 – December 9, 2018
Reception: Wednesday, December 5, 2018 6-8 PM

Digitally Represented Artist



Iva Milanova’s masterful paintings are steeped in the folk traditions of her native Bulgaria. As a child she learned from her grandmother how to weave, mix colors and dye fabric. This ancient tradition embedded itself in Milanova’s paintings to this day. Her work displays the highest degree of sophistication in the handling of color. The artist deploys color with great confidence and boldness, creating rich emotional content and a shimmering sense of light. In the painting Costume, for instance, she achieves a remarkably powerful composition based on cool and warm values and complimentary colors. Milanova’s paintings also retain the tactility and humanistic warmth of the weaving process. Such pieces as The Encounter and The Spectacle are obviously tapestry-like. The artist’s respect for craft and decorative arts goes hand-in-hand with her spirituality: in addition to textile design, she draws inspiration from mosaics and Christian icons.

Iva Milanova successfully sold her textile designs to fashion companies when she was only 10 years old. A natural talent as well as a highly accomplished professional, she exhibits widely.
