Welcome to my World!

     

I'm Katushka Millones, from Brookfield, Connecticut. A contemporary artist working primarily with oils, but if I get the chance, I create using everything I can get my hands on!

After I got my degree in architecture in Lima, Peru, and settled down, I went right back to the one thing I really loved: art. Since the early 2000's I started a never ending and always surprising trip to the world of painting and the creation of objects.

 

Moved by Turner's dramatic skies, Kandinsky's colorful palette, and Cornell's assemblages, my work explores the relationship between the land and the sea- where there is a welcoming moment of solitude waiting for the viewer.

Inspired by Turner during this time of pandemic, I look to evoke a deep nostalgia through the oceans and clouds frozen in time by my work. 

 

My creative process elevates the meaning of the found objects I use, assigning them newfound values and purposes. My thoughts and ideas are just as robust regardless of the size of the work.

 

Using a variety of formats and supports, I try to give freedom to my creations, allowing the viewer to establish their own interpretation of the scene.

 

I am compromised and moved by the land that surrounds me, re-creating the stories planted in my mind, giving them the space and time to sprout, and hopefully grow into your soul.
