Mix Amylo is an artist, musician, composer, writer and dreamer, from London but based in Spain, who creates personal dreamscapes, finding strange beauty in dark places…
With her art she explores memory, dream, doorways into parallel worlds, and weaves eroticism, angst and human frailty into an often incredibly detailed, usually black and white surrealism…She is interested in moments, feelings, thoughts, what lingers, the residue from night splinters, and capturing the subconscious…Through a language both stark and beautiful, her work expresses an inner life, using a densely populated solitude, an escape from reality, and a complex spectrum of intangibles…Her earlier work uses bold, striking colours and images to portray both strength and fragility from an intrinsically feminine perspective…
