June 5 - 30, 2004
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 5th 3 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Ward-Nasse Gallery proudly presents the one-person show of the New York Times' featured artist Olan. Olan's work has appeared in many gallery and nightclub venues in the NYC area in recent months. As Boy George reportedly said, "To put it mildly, the man is on fire."
The artist's technique in creating portraits involves a mix of elements. After taking pictures of celebrities (Boy George, Courtney Love, Alan Cunning, Susan Jaffe etc.) the artist paints on them. The images he creates are a combination of digital photographs, plastic and acrylic. "I like to use digital images plastics, polymers because they reflect our times, our synthetic evolution juxtaposed with the subject matter, the organic individual, our natural environment. This is my work -that bridge between the two." The colors the artist uses to create his mixed media images are bold: red, orange, blue and they seem to reflect the personality of the portrayed person.
The exhibition will remain open until June 30th, Tuesday through Saturday, 11am to 6pm and Sunday 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
This exhibition is located at the Ward-Nasse Gallery 178 Prince Street New York NY 10011
