From a young age, Olga had a fascination and appreciation for the beauty in everyday objects. Olga attempts to relay this beauty to the viewer through the pieces she creates. She says, “… my task is to ensure that the viewer can share with me the appreciation of both nature’s work and the work of human beings, who created the objects I have chosen to paint. I work in the realist style, which requires a great deal of skill and a lot of time. I am following the path of traditional artistic representation by portraying what I want, how I see it through my own eyes and feel it in my heart. I don’t succumb to pressure to produce contemporary pieces, but instead, I try to create something timeless and appealing to a wide audience, without the need for further explanation.”

Stirato Gallery is hosting the Drawn to Beauty exhibition official opening this Saturday 7 July from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm. It’s free and all are welcome.
