About The Artwork

Olivia painted a canvas that deeply depicted her heart feeling at the time. She was devastated by a complicated love story and her life was going bankrupt. Her painting is so intimately linked with her emotions and this piece is one of the best example of how she can get overwhelmed by her feelings. This heart touching the bottom, physically has nevertheless all opportunity to climb up again which is subtly suggested by the canvas format and orientation. Despite its very heavy atmosphere hope is physically there!

“ My paintings reveal what I perceive from the space around me, what my body captures and collects from the quality of the link existing between all things, this always renewed energy in which every being and every object find their unique and right place among the others.” Nothing defines better Olivia’s artistic approach. From her paintings spurt out all colors of life. From this life that surrounds us she has slowly learned how to tame the energy and beauty. From a simple line that makes the eye travel, she carries us in her world full of mixed lightness, grace and depth. Sometimes heavy, sometimes refined, from wide filled areas to thin lines, everything on her images helps reconstruct inside us the emotion of a new gaze, a new vision of the spaces that we had always believed we know and thereby consider them boring. Her work is a continuous invitation to reconsider our views on the world, views that are sclerosed by our habits and indifference that have made beauty escape from us. A breath of fresh air, a wake-up call to our senses for us to reborn new. A selection of her canvasses shown here represents her work as the result of a long artistic research but also an intense introspective travel. From her childhood, drawing has accompanied all the detours of her life. She has explored various technics: from chalk to pastel and charcoal, she has also tried watercolor, oil and Indian ink. Although she only has recently started painting as a professional, these past experiences have allowed her today to intermingle these tools to express all the wealth of the diversity of reality. With great patience she has developed her technicality to serve her expressivity. She has applied it on different supports including paper, natural materials, walls to finally find the ultimate simple perfection of the canvas.
