Mila Furstova

One factor that differentiates Míla’s work from that of her contemporaries is that she appears able to imagine with great clarity and then produce in two or three dimensions what she has imagined, dreamed or composes from stories, myths or childhood memories. 

Míla is intensely interested in how we as viewers interpret or see the images she has prepared for us.
