About the Work
'Using geometric forms, such as those discussed in C. G. Jung's "Man and his Symbols", and influenced by developments in international abstract art, Milan's paintings in the sixties were based partly on the squared circle ormandala motif which Jung says respresents "enlightenment, or human perfection".'
