severin’s choice: olga dmytrenko

Born in Ukraine but with Russian roots, the American visual artist Olga Dmytrenko successfully creates almost abstract methapysical landscapes called ’’abstravaganza.’’
Reminding some of the early compositions of Kandinsky’s semi-abstract works, but with a softer palette, similar to the surrealists, her art is very fluid and dynamic because of the preference for the curve lines, the geometry of the vivid world.
The artist evokes reality in a dreamer’s way, succeeding to make abstract art rejecting the decorative elements. Olga’s paintings aproach abstraction with a special senzitivity and intimacy, so the result can be compared to a kind of condensation of feelings.
She learned very well Cezanne’s lesson that colours in a painting must have a structure. The organization of the fine structures of her organic abstract artworks is sometimes comparable to the vibrato of a violin and is very moving for all the art lovers. The Slavic pathos can be read among these improvisations with the stress put on the purity of the sensations rather than on the clarity of forms.

  1. Absolutely fascinating: the art work, the movie itself and the background music. Olga Dmytrenko’s style is perfectly suited for the European market, rather than elsewhere.
