Marina Olmi Paints Bold and Colorful Works That Combine Art with Humor

The paintings of Marina Olmi explore the human body through the prism of the elements: water, air, fire and earth.

By flattening out the human figure, Olmi is able to transform it into an abstract pattern of limbs and colors, twisting bodies around and breaking them apart so that her subjects take on a surreal, almost alien, aspect. The artist is influenced by photography and film, something that is clearly evident in the way she plays with visual distortion and optical effects. Yet Olmi’s work is more than a pastiche of visual puns: there is an underlying sense of emotional resonance to each piece, perhaps reflecting the painter’s own state of mind.

Known for employing bright colors and humor in her work, Marina Olmi is originally from Argentina and has also worked as a rock musician, actress and performer. Her painting style is a unique blend of punk aesthetic, classical art knowledge, bold composition and an underlying spirituality. She says her work is a constant exploration of different forms of expression, with the goal of “healing through art and humor.”

About the Exhibition

From photorealistic renderings to energetic abstractions, the artwork in Kaleidoscope of the Mind demonstrates the myriad truths artists investigate through their work. The artists featured in this exhibition express themselves using a range of techniques, which meld together in a mosaic of visions, personal truths, and questions of existence. In this show, physicality is evocative, abstraction is descriptive, and every technique is meaningful.
