  • Novokhatska Olga | Contemporary Artist: Artworks & Biography
Novokhatska Olga
The main purpose of my painting is not the subject, but the whole painting, colors and effects of different textures.
By the age of 16, Olga Novokhatska was certain of her artistic future. She enroll in an arts- specialized high school and was later accepted to the renowned State Academy of Design and Fine Arts in Kharkiv. At the end of her studies, she moved to France in 2008 and obtained a second degree from the Ecole Supérieure d'Art in Lorraine. Since then, Olga has work consistently throughout France. The viewer may be tempted to see a certain form of nostalgia in her work, to recognise someone or to rediscover a place, a situation, a context. But Olga Novokhatska’s works are above all filled with a sense of timelessness. Exploring the relationships between sensuality and materiality, the artist develops a practice halfway between figuration and abstraction, between the infinite and spatial limits.
Olga Novokhatska’s practice is not a place of pictorial tradition or art history but is rather a ever deeper experience of the matter. Almost lifelike, the painting is fanatic, troubled by the artist’s gestures. Paste, oils or acrylics, continually unveiling its secrets, vary its effects and textures, take on allures of whirlwinds or still waters. The infinite variety of touches, thickness or fluidity of the pigment, the gesture, thus give the composition a relief, a depth, a shape. Expressionist, the painting bases a technical and chromatic foundation in the choice of its colours, tones, shades and light. Influenced by classical Russian painting, her world summons real, inhabited, left behind and fantasy places, real-life or dreamt-up people.
