Vision: There is a strong globalization of everything in the world today. This universalization applies to almost all aspects of our lives ranging from social networks to consumer e-commerce platforms. These platforms now perform the function of not only communication, but also other services such as the sale and delivery of consumer goods and in regards to the the entertainment industry, movies and education programs. These two paintings reflect my perception of such a beauty laboratory where you can get a manicure, a haircut, and a health analysis (utilizing the hair and nail samples), at the same time. This means that you can simultaneously check and control the body’s vitamins, minerals, hormones, etc. It will help with saving time and help make the health check process more pleasant. The work in the laboratory will be performed by robots. Everything will be automated. That is my view of the future.
About the Artist: Olga Bolgar was born in Russia. She liked to draw from a very young age. After being invited to attend a local art studio, she started to take art seriously. She earned her master’s degree in Fine Art from The Art College of Yaroslavl.
Her earliest focus was on Russian orthodox icons, and she spent two years perfecting this. Following that, she approaches the challenge of landscape, figurative work, portraiture, and imaginary realism paintings. Most of her current paintings are figurative, capturing domestic situations from ordinary life. She works mainly in oil, but enjoys using multiple mediums including watercolor, ink, pastels, graphite pencil and charcoal. Olga is a member of the Portrait Society of America, American Impressionist Society and National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society.
"I like the process of creation. It makes life meaningful. I can share my vision of the world and sense of colors. I believe art involves the arduous complex and exhilarating task of communicating that which is beyond the physical world. I try - with limited tools, instruments, and a subject that cannot communicate but through light and shadow - to bring life into a two-dimensional world, to bring depth and space to a flat surface.
At this point in my career, many of my paintings are in private collections in US and Russia. I am working on perfecting my style, and to be able to one day express myself with brush strokes and colors as easily as if I were talking out loud. I am happy to be a part of art community."
