In her work there is a lot of painted images of women filled with spontaneous exuberance. Those women are also usually naked, but Milbrath’s display of the female body is in no way pornographic. Au contraire, she is enlightening the female form in a way that isn’t titillating or sexualized. If anything, it is pure, humorous and respectful.
Darby Milbrath is an emerging artist – painter - from Canada, she has left her day job to focus on traveling and studies. Her starting point is Japan, and then who knows what follows, the only thing that is certain is that she will work on her art practice wherever she is and see how different locations and cultures affect her painting. We love the way she portrays female form, and we love how we see a little Danny Fox in her, so we decided to give her a shout out and ask her a few questions….
