Milanda De Mont’s enamel paintings exemplify her ideas of artistic expression as a means of liberation. De Mont’s fluid brushstrokes exhibit a vibrancy and life of their own. Inspired by the energies and movement of nature, De Mont is able to personify these energies through colors, lines, and forms that transform the canvas into a unified living image. De Mont describes her process as energetic and spontaneous. “I let myself be carried away without resistance while my entire being is dedicated to the free-flowing expression of line, color and form as it coalesces into living imagery.” Influenced by the physical urges of Abstract Expressionism, her paintings unleash the fury of Franz Kline with the colorful lyricism of Helen Frankenthaler. Each painting sustains its own unity while at the same time encompassing a vivid, distinct, abstract expression that is universally appealing. De Mont’s appeal lies in her ability to express relationships that exist between nature and mankind. The abstract forms De Mont creates, express a unification of these natural and humanistic elements.
