Osnat Oliva – Abstract Compositions: Capturing Beauty in a Junk-Pile (Online); Thursdays, July 18-August 1, 2024

Date: Thursdays, July 18-August 1, 2024
Time: 9:00-11:00 AM Pacific Time, 12:00-2:00 PM Eastern Time, 6:00-8:00 PM UK Time
Level: All
Medium: Oil or acrylic

Each student will set up his own junk-pile using different still life objects. The junk-pile should be quite random, letting the objects mix with each other and create interesting junctions and shapes. Using our viewfinder we will observe the junk pile and find interesting and surprising motifs. We will draw and paint them, focusing on the abstract qualities of the compositions.

Osnat Oliva is one of a new generation of representational painters emerging from an atelier training with technical brilliance and fresh vision. Osnat lives and works in Israel. She studied for six years at the Jerusalem Studio School, founded by Israel Hershberg, with summers painting landscapes in Italy. Seeking compositions that are abstract and magical that go beyond observation, combining several motifs full of shapes, movement and richly layered textured surfaces.
