Olga studies the space of the image inspired by the subjective view. Her research combines painting and sculpture. She releases her paintings from their surfaces and transfers her works on the two-dimensional point of view. Therefore she gives the viewer several points of view. Reality is continuously dissolved and revealed in the viewer’s spatial itinerary, representing the idea of the infinity.
