Artist Statement ->>
Since 2010, Olga Lupi has been working in the collage medium, using images from vintage magazines, catalogues, and tattered books and encyclopedias.
From bucolic to somewhat grotesque or edgy, her quirky deconstructions form remarkable scenes of people, hybrids, and magical happenings that are occasionally disturbing yet often lyrical.
Olga’s collages of vintage materials in time-worn colors never fail to stimulate the viewer’s imagination – each totally unique – creating anachronistically unexpected moments of charm, wit, and occasional dark humor.
