Artist Statement

Milne populates the electronic social media platform with an unadulterated gusto with the various and utterly diverse manifestations of her imaginings.

Formally educated in line drawing, figure drawing, colour and expression of interpretation of form; Milne encompasses all disciplines in her work. Shown here are examples of her fine art drawing, painting and photography skills.

Also featured here are three screen captures of her new dynamic, multi-layered, multi-dimensional electronic media works. Original pen and ink drawings, original watercolours; original poetry, original voice over and sound bites retrieved from a library of audio samples collected over the years all contribute to these smooth 'mediasculptures'.

These shorts - multi-media video collages - ask penetrating questions about our place in the universe and present Milne's artistic interpretation of such. Driven by years of literary and artistic influence Milne seeks to startle and uncover connections from the Not Obvious.
