Works by Red Milk Crone
Presented by Art Room
August 5–October 1, 2022
Watered Down: La Vie Des Femmes is a show with pieces ranging in medium from paintings to fiber and sculpture, all of which represent women. Through plants, Judaic and catholic biblical historical events, Aztec Gods, and occupations, this body of work shows the reality of what it means to be a woman. Mixed inspiration from Pablo Picasso, Leonara Carrington and Francis Bacon all flows through this body of work.
About Red Milk Crone
Red Milk Crone aka Lady Di is a mixed media artist that rebels against the traditional methods and styles, often confusing the viewer and making them fall into her world of works like a Venus fly trap.
She started painting and creating as a toddler in her mother’s kitchen with a phonebook and pens while her mother was cooking. As she grew, so did her art studies throughout her school years to college and University. Born and raised in Toronto to a daughter of a jewelry designer and maker, she had to grow in a fast paced and male dominated art world with constant rejection and constant reminders of being a woman. Creating and painting for four decades allows Lady Di to constantly adapt, to change and ignore authority for the “art rules”. “There are no rules when creating. Art is politics, whether it’s your views or not.”
Now a full time artist and illustrator, Lady Di continues to push the dialogue that is often taboo.
