With Reflections, Olga Karlovac presents a visual journal of her inner worlds as a series of experimental self-portraits alongside timeless and nameless landscapes.
Karlovac’s work occupies a space in between: figuration and abstraction; shadow and light; recollection and the here and now. Using her camera as a painterly tool to create an atmospheric and grainy aesthetic, her intentionally blurred contemplations intuitively convey fluidity and emotion. Not intending to chronicle a specific circumstance or situation, the artist evokes memories and moods that are at once intimate and universal.
The exhibition concludes a period of transition that spanned six years and three books.
