Mila Apperlo is an abstract painter inspired by textures, colors and sounds of the natural world. She has engaged in painting on canvas using a variety of techniques and media.
With a subtle minimalistic approach, Mila creates work in which a fascination with the clarity of content and an uncompromising attitude towards conceptual and minimal art can be found. Her works doesn’t reference recognizable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. By applying abstraction, Mila creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles.
