Soey Milk, between Realism and Abstraction.
Intense, tender, passionate: that's Soey Milk’s work, where the real and the abstract, the East and the West meet. The Korean-born, Los Angeles based artist paints porcelain faces and bare alabaster bodies, often placing them in undefined and abstract scenarios.
In her paintings, the Korean tradition references are recalled, in the tender but mysterious looks of her subjects. The candid skin wrinkles of her models, floating among the objects that Soey Milk paints, hide a whole universe made of subtle sensations and tiny details that describe a world between fantasy and reality.
