MILBURN CHERIAN – A solo show November –December 2008 @Art Musings & Jehangir Art Gallery Art Musings gallery featured a solo exhibition by renowned artist Milburn Cherian. The show featured a large body of recent paintings in acrylic in her trademark palette of amber, ochre and mahogany, with a medieval theme. Though Milburn recognizes the formative influence of Breugel and other pre-Renaissance painters, she has evolved a distinct style, thus making her detailed work totally individual and unique. In the words of art critic Carmel Berkson, “The initial effect of conglomerate, multiple, individual shapes offers the viewer, who is intent on entering this highly complex world of interacting form, colors and symbols, the possibility of initiating, step by step, detail by meticulously executed detail, a journey which leads on towards an ultimately unified, single synthetic whole.” Born in Mumbai, Milburn graduated from National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad. She has had several solo shows in India & UK and has participated in important group shows as well.
