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: “Tentacles” is photo art from my ongoing abstract series. One of my favorite subjects is water. Our planet and universe are full of wonder. So many beautiful shapes twisting around, dancing through time. I do love creating art that leaves room for your imagination. “Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man’s desire to understand.” Neil Armstrong.
