Olga is a visual artist primarily using the medium of photography. She uses photography as a tool – like an instrument to make music or a brush for painting – to create an image of her vision, with a dreamy and indirect relationship to external reality. She does this in varying styles. Some images are essentially representative photography of the world around her that nevertheless dissolve into the wonder of abstract pattern, while others are complex manipulations of the ordinary visual world that use intentional camera movement, multiple exposures, and well planned color palettes to reflect her vision, dreams and feelings.
Her works had been shown in the galleries around the United States and in Europe, had been featured in l’Oeil de la Photographie, Dodho and YourdDailyPhotograph among others. Olga’s limited and open edition prints are available at galleries and held by private collectors throughout the world.
