Milla Eastwood ‘Drunk on Colour’




Milla Eastwood is an action painter, inspired by gestural painters, including Julian Schnabel and Eddie Martinez. Moving quickly over the canvas, turning it upside down and using the materials she has to hand. One mark leads to, informs and changes another. Eastwood’s process is about responding and creating a visual sensation that connects to the eye and the body, through movement. Inspired by abstract expressionists such as Albert Irvin, Howard Hodgkin and Gillian Ayres, Eastwood’s work explores ideas of spontaneity and authenticity. Her use of intense colour and gesture creates a sheer energy and tension in the work. 

As part of her practice, Eastwood often works outside and in botanical gardens, although her works are not representations of the landscape. Immersing herself in nature and tropical nurseries gives Eastwood a sense of freedom and allows her paintings to be bold and reactive. Eastwood creates sensual imagery of exotic beauty to visually seduce the viewer.

Eastwood obtained a BA in Fine Art from Wimbledon College of Arts and a Foundation CCW from Camberwell College of Arts in London. Eastwood currently lives and works in London.
