Today we are featuring the artwork of Olga de Klein.  Olga works with a wide variety of media in general from sculpture to painting, drawing and collage. I enjoy the kinetic energy of her mark making in these 2-d works. These grids seem to vibrate on the verge of explosion an effect that seems to be born from her vigorous mark-making and sheer colour layers that contrast with base colour layers.

 

"A native of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Olga de Klein has lived in the Chattanooga area since 1987. Previous places she has called "home" include Mexico City, Acapulco, and Cancun, as well as Cali, Colombia, and Willemstad, Curacao.  Creativity always has been part of her life.  While initially her paintings were focused on portraits in oil, she has morphed into abstraction and textiles, with an unmistakable vivid color palette, which she attributes to her years of living in Mexico and South America." - olgadeklein.com
