NATALIE OLANICK // Montreal, Quebec, Canada
I am interested in how shared meanings can also evoke personal familiarity. In making paintings and book works, I ask myself questions which results in works that have messages and possible interpretations that shift between social and personal histories. I weave a fabric of my thoughts with the shapes and forms of our world. My process of working includes an open field of signification in which established associations and potential readings are layered. I work with my materials as tools to illustrate ideas rather than as a skill that must be mastered.
