Míla Fürstová’s intricately spiritual works explore intimate portrayals of the human soul, expressed through various artistic media. Her practice is complex and varied, including the use of mirrors and paper cut outs—often combining several processes in one piece of art. Míla’s recent journey into motherhood has influenced the new work exhibited at Eames Fine Art. This experience has opened up her art to a new kind of subject matter and spirituality. Her etchings express the state of the soul through a distinctly feminine artistic voice—at once strong and fragile, dark and light, poetic and narrative, emblematic of both the past and the future.
‘This is the Age of Woman: An Age of strength and confidence—gentle, but with the weight of universal and personal mythologies at its heart.’ Míla Fürstová
