Today we’re featuring the artwork of Olga de Klein! Olga frequently works in collage and mixed media, creating nostalgic collections of detritus, small trinkets and photographs.

These collage works have a delicate beauty and mystery to them, which is in fitting with the rest of Olga’s body of work. The artist also paints, working in both oil and acrylic. Abstracted oil works depicting pastel-coloured geometric patterns are oddly at home amongst her other works. Olga’s Shoe Series of acrylic paintings also ties into the fragmented nature of the rest of the work – we are left guessing at the true nature of the subject, after being given only a small view of a larger whole.
