Signature style

Olga’s work in sculpture has largely influenced her relationship with other mediums, as it is seen in her lithographic works and engravings, which stems from a process combining intuition and accident. By means notably of ink, water, acid and gum arabic, these abstract and graphic works testify to the spatio-temporal context of creation, that of the apprehension of a form before it is limited by a meaning, as well as the physical and chemical qualities of their components.
