Olga Dean Hart

My artistic practice centres on the exploration of the human soul, a concept as elusive as it is enduring. Drawing inspiration from Carl Jung’s theory of the collective unconscious, my work delves into the interconnectedness of human experience. Circles, both precisely rendered and fluidly expressed, serve as a visual representation of the individual soul. These forms coexist within a vibrant tapestry of colour, symbolising the shared space of the collective unconscious. This interplay between order and chaos reflects the ongoing philosophical debate surrounding determinism and free will. My paintings function as visual metaphors, prompting viewers to contemplate the possibility of creativity and individual expression existing within structured systems.

Abstract Expressionism and the Russian avant-garde movements have significantly influenced the development of my artistic voice. The bold brushstrokes and raw energy characteristic of Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko’s works resonate deeply with my desire to create emotive and expressive pieces that challenge traditional artistic boundaries. Similarly, the geometric shapes and bold colours employed by Kazimir Malevich and Lyubov Popova inform my approach to abstraction and composition, fostering a sense of depth and dynamism within each canvas. Beyond the aesthetics, my primary objective lies in fostering a dialogue with the viewer.

Each artwork transcends the physical canvas, acting as a conduit for deeper reflection. I invite viewers to engage not only with the visual elements of colour and form but also to contemplate the existential questions embedded within the work. Perhaps they will find themselves resonating with the internal struggles depicted – the yearning for order amidst chaos, the potential for freedom within defined structures.
