The Festive Holiday Season Auction

Artist: Olga Merrill is an award-winning Maine (USA) based visual artist primarily using the medium of photography. She uses photography as a tool- like an instrument to make music or a brush for painting-to create an image of her vision, with a dreamy and indirect relationship to external reality. Some images are essentially representative photography of the world around her that nevertheless dissolve into the wonder of abstract patterns, while others are complex manipulations of the ordinary visual world that use intentional camera movement, multiple exposures, and well planned color palettes to reflect her vision, dreams and feelings. Merrill’s work has been part of group shows and festivals nationally and internationally, including NYC Center of Photography (USA), Davis Orton Gallery (USA), Foto-Foto Gallery (USA), Griffin Museum of Photography (USA), Praxis Gallery (USA), PH21 Gallery (Hungary), Malta Postal Mu- seum (Malta), Fondazione de Matalon (Italy), Rockport Art Association & Museum (USA), Blank Wall Gallery (Greece), online shows at Center for Photographic Arts (USA), Center for Fine Art Photography (USA), among others. Merrill was the 1st Place Winner, International Juried exhibit “Black and White 2020”, NYC4PA; 1st place winner, 15th Annual National Photography Competition at Foto-Foto Gallery, 2019; Silver Award at San Francisco Bay International Photography Competition, 2019; Juror’s Choice Award at International Exhibitions, Praxis Gallery, 2018. She was featured in l’Oeil de la Photographie, Dodho and YourdDailyPhotograph, Edge of Humanity, Shadow and Light magazine, Fine Art Photo (N29) among others. Merrill’s artworks have found homes with art lovers and reside in private collections around the world. Statement: “City Canyon” is one of my artworks belonging to my impressionistic style series “Urban Spirits”. “Urban Spirits” represents the contempo- rary life of the cities through my eyes. I capture my images using multi-exposure mode in-camera to reveal my vision of dynamic, layered life of the metropolises and enigmatic spirits of the cozy towns. This series draws from my love of exploring the world and my urge to push on to yet another horizon, as well as the ways my imagination transforms the places, I find myself. “City Canyon” has received several International Awards: (2020 Honorable Mention BIFA 2020 Architecture, Cityscapes, 2019 Chromatic Awards, Annual International Color Photography Contest, Amateur Category, Honorable Mention, (Cityscapes), 14th Pollux Awards, Non-Professional section, Winner “Cityscapes”).
