Olivia’s collage art is based on a completely analog workflow. From the selection to the actual assembling of the piece she chooses not to interfere with any digital tool, giving her work a certain organic feeling.
At the present, Olivia is immersed in the production of her new series with a special focus on the female figure in synergy with nature and the loss of identity. She cuts and layers retro fashion and botanical imagery creating a work of art with a particular vision of beauty.
This combination of two completely recognizable elements merging into a new meaning without necessarily erasing their original content is a key factor in her research and working process.
The simplicity of the process itself is a harmonious balance between selecting and collecting the images before cutting and pasting them into a whole new context. By doing so an image that may seem very banal at first transforms itself.
