Etihad Modern Art Gallery – ABU DHABI
12 March – 11 April 2019
Opening night: 12 Mar at 7pm
During the festive season of Art Dubai 2019, Etihad Modern Gallery in Abu Dhabi will have a premiere of the eclectic artworks of an Italian contemporary artist, Lucia Oliva. “Reflections”, to express the artist’s soul through creating optical illusions by painting, sculpting and adding mirrors to her subjects will be open to the public from the 12th of March until the 11th of April 2019. This prestigious event is curated and organized by Mrs. Fadia Reda.
Oliva is a self-taught artist, with an international background in the world of art as choreographer, dancer and event organizer. Her work communicates through an intuitive and universal language, rich in astonishing scenic effects, meant to have both an emotional and a conceptual impact on the observer.
Oliva’s unique art has been granted an immediate and ever-growing success in many solos, group exhibitions and art symposiums all around the world. Her works are owned by private collectors in Europe as well as in India, Oman, Jordan, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and other countries.
“Sculpting with Color”, Oliva creates subjects embedded in artworks that are rich in harmonies and movements that highlight the “lightness” of the stone.
Playing with mirrors and other accessories, she recently invented her unique concept which creates a sort of contemporary “trompe l’oeil” effect, with original scenic set-ups that are a combination of sculpture, painting, installation and theatre. Her peculiar interpretation of the anamorphosis phenomenon gives life to artworks that consist in a tangible side on stone and an ethereal one, which completes the enigmatic effect to the viewers.
