the art of brandi milne feels familiar, yet foreign. i was first attracted by her rosey-cheeked characters and their gleeful expressions, but what held my stare was the deeper sense of desperation that lingered behind their frozen smiles. on occasion, these characters are visited by a serene and elegant girl that towers over them. the girls in milne’s world seem to be holding onto what they value most in a world riddled with chaos. you can find original paintings from brandi’s most recent show, run rabbit, run at thinkspace gallery.
i’m attracted to primary colors, bold & saturated. i always have been—even grabbing colors in my box of crayons growing up. i relate to em much better—i think in em, i wear em, they call my name. to me they’re not pretentious, they’re more silly and fun which better describes personalities i’m attracted to as well.
