In his "Female Bodybuilders," Milan furthers his exploration of the athletic, muscular body. The subjects of his drawings, taken from industry magazines and combined with other imagery of women  from fashion and pornography, hover between  the  heroic  and  the  grotesque.   Viscerally and  starkly rendered in charcoal, both  large  and  small  in  format, Milan’s  figures become post-gender warriors, a tribe of contemporary Amazons who through extreme labor transmogrify their bodies and in turn push the contemporary ideal of physical perfection into uncharted realms.
