Mucciaccia Gallery is delighted to present Sensory Synergy, an exhibition featuring new works by Brigita Huemer and Misha Milovanovich, curated by Catherine Loewe. Their debut exhibition with the London gallery will be on display from 31st May to 30th September 2023.
Sensory Synergy describes the dynamic connection between these two female artists whose art is infused with a sense of healing and a shared ability to transport the viewer through the power of colour, material and form.
For this exhibition, Misha Milovanovich has created six unique sculptures, each drawing inspiration from fragmented cubism, biomorphic surrealism, and dynamic visual humour, infused with a shamanic vigour that references the natural world.
Misha Milovanovich “Tupi”
Brigita Huemer has created nine paintings on plexiglass that investigate themes of order and chaos focussing on emotional responses to a society dominated by globalisation, technology and control. Her subtle use of light and shadow create rhythms that reflect the artist’s overlapping thought processes, echoing patterns found in music.

The exhibition aims to explore the intersection of sensory modalities and how this interaction creates meaning and experience in art and life. The exhibition encourages the viewer to reflect on their own sensory perceptions and how this shapes their relationship with the world around them.
Sensory Synergy is an exhibition that celebrates the shared vision and dedication of two exceptional female artists whose work reflects a deep understanding of the ability of art to provoke change and inspire transformation.

About Brigita Huemer
Brigita Huemer was born in Austria and lives in Italy. Her beautifully crafted work encompasses painting and sculpture using perspex as her chosen medium. After finishing her education in fashion design she moved to New York where she worked with the photographer Todd Everle and studied at The School of Visual Arts and the International Centre of Photography. In 2018 she participated in Ricordi futuri 4.0 – Cosa c’è in fondo al binario at the Milan Holocaust Memorial curated by Ermanno Tedeschi and the duo exhibition Emotiva, Brigita Huemer e Angelica Romeo curated by Cesare Biasini Selvaggi at Mucciaccia Contemporary gallery in Rome.
Misha Milovanovich is a Belgrade-born artist living and working in London. She works across several mediums, from sculpture to painting and digital art. Characterised by vivid colour, optical movement, and energetic visual cadences, Misha‘s visual work fuses a diverse repertoire of images and forms. Misha’s playful totemic sculptures reflect a kind of prism that defines a new form of appropriation and reference-making. Misha has exhibited in the UK and internationally in Switzerland, the Middle East, USA, Italy and her recent solo show The Shape of Colour at Dellasposa Gallery in 2021 and duo show with Jason Martin at Private and Public Gallery, Jersey in 2022. Her work will be included in the Public Art Trail at this year’s Kensington & Chelsea Art Festival.
