Olga Marie Polunin – a Singaporean artist explores the many facets of women through images of the Asian feminine form. Painting in both oil and gouache, her work is both sensual and spiritual. A mother of two, Olga expanded her studies to include the sacred yet playful bond between mother and child. Her positive rendition of the Madonna theme is one that is both personal and universal.
Olga has held solo-exhibition in Brussels in October 1997, at Professor Arthur Lim Gallery in Singapore in February 1999, and at Locus Media Gallery in Soho, New York in October 1999 and Boston, May 2000.
Her works can also be found in private collections in Singapore, Indonesia, Brussels, Paris, Boston, Los Angeles and New York. She is fresh from a solo-exhibition in Boston, May 2000, and a group show in New York with such well-known artists as Bruce Weber and Eric Fischl.
