Connaught Village’s Dellasposa Gallery is proud to showcase a new exhibition – The Shape of Colour by Belgrade-born artist Misha Milovanovich. Running from 10th March through to 9th May the virtual event will allow viewers to explore Milovanovich’s exhibition from the comfort of their homes.
Exploring colour, materiality and shape, The Shape of Colour is the artist’s first solo show with the gallery. The virtual online event will take viewers on a tour of the exhibition, investigating how Milovanovich works with colour to transform steel, commonly associated with being harshly industrial and refractory, to vibrant free-standing structures that feature both monochromatic and glossy textures. The exhibition is set to evoke the sense and feeling of a visual symphony.
Beginning in 2019 the ‘Misha World Sculptures’ series comprises a mixture of both theoretical and art-historical influences to create sculptures of varying heights and widths. The ‘Pinga in Pink’ for example stands at a bold 80 cm tall and is perplexingly a balancing free-form composition. It explores the online and offline art experience that many are now familiar with, which has allowed the artist to experiment with the endless possibilities that come with the world of virtual events.
Inspired by a state of being, with influence drawn from the artist’s interpretation of anthropomorphic forms as well as upon the concept of shapeshifting, much like that of those in mythological stories and beast-like cave paintings that can be found in Les Trois Frères in France the sculptures are densely layered and boast some outstanding warps and curves.
When creating these pieces, Milovanovich modifies what were once maquettes to bold enlarged pieces of steel. Taking inspiration from the likes of Alexander Calder and the surrealist nature of Joan Miro’s forms. The harmonic influences in her work she credits to that of Isama Noguchi and Elizabeth Murray.
Immerse yourself in an exhibition that doesn’t play by the rule books, merging figuration and abstraction with the divine ambiguity of the physical and spiritual.
The sculptures will be available for the public to view once the gallery reopens.
