Two dimensional art often occurs through a process of discovery combined with release. Finding the perfect color, tone and spatial composition is key to expressing thoughts and ideas in a way that can be felt by others. Olivia Stark is dedicated to her work in this way and it shows through her abstract paintings which are filled with color, poise and clarity. She walks us through recent works that draw directly from her personal experiences and emotional processing of the world around us.
