The Art of Soey Milk

With a stunningly emotive precision, artist Soey Milkcreates portraits of lone women, often engaging with simple objects such as anapple, red string and a bleached skull that appear symbolically charged withinthe composition. These inclusions add to a deeper understanding of the womandepicted, often lending the portraits with a romantic context. Laced with asubtle darkness or oddity, the works appear as captured moments in a largernarrative. View more images of the work after the jump.
