Milena Roglic’s work deals with formal and material investigations and deep engagement with processes that range in painting, mixed media, and collage. Fundamental principles of colour, texture, and form are examined and used to relay visual experiences from everyday life. Her work combines new and repurposed materials, often incorporating studio ephemera with subtle references to architecture, music, and early 20th-century art history. Bits of torn paper, stencils, scraps of paintings, and selected imagery form a dialogue between past works and developing interests.
Milena Roglic lives and works in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She obtained her MFA from York University and a BFA from Concordia University. In 2018, she attended the Master Artist Residency program at the Atlantic Center for the Arts in New Smyrna Beach, Florida (US). In 2016, she participated in a 4-month program at PILOTENKUECHE International Artist Residence in Leipzig, Germany. Her work has been exhibited in group exhibitions at Halle 14C, Spinnerei, Leipzig (DE), Art Mûr, Montreal (CA), and Hamilton Artists Inc., Hamilton (CA). Roglic has received Emerging Artist Grants from the Ontario Arts Council and Toronto Arts Council.
