J'ai fait un rêve©

J'ai fait un rêve© (I had a dream) is written in 6 different languages (Dutch, English, German, Italian, Spanish, French) -each in a separate ray.

This surrealistic painting is luxuriously painted in thick acrylics with glorious metallic colors to evoke the spookiness of a surrealistic dream.
I love the surrealistic style in which fantastical visual imagery from the subconscious mind is used with no intention of making the work logically comprehensible.

If you want to see this painting, it's hanging at my daughter Fleur's apartment in New York City Manhattan!
I framed it in a bordeaux red wooden frame.
Really smashing! ___________________________________

Phantastic, overwhelming. It almost knocked me off my feet. The title matches perfectly to the picture. Elements of constructivism are embedded to. Bravo!

Jerrie Glasper 15 Dec 2006

Wheeew!!! what a wonderfully bent, yet, philosophical human being, you are. Chills... from looking into your deep eyes through your art. I felt naked when I percieved this abstract.

Andrea Wasson 12 Dec 2006

Ines Froehlich 28 Oct 2006

It looks great!!

Collette Renee Fergus 16 Oct 2006

Wow Olga, amazing stuff. I love eyes like you obviously do too! Surrealism is not an easy art-form, but you seem to understand it well! The name 'J'ai fait un rêve' and the use of it throughout the painting is a fabulous touch! Bravo! Collette

Chadwick Yates 13 Oct 2006

Wow, Olga! This is some great surreal work. I love the rich bold colors and the geometrics. Great piece, thanks for sharing with us!

Dave Layne 11 Oct 2006

I love your style!

Kathy Albright 10 Oct 2006

The eye really shows vivid expression. Very surreal and lovely.

John Sandora 07 Oct 2006

Though I don't understand all aspects of it, this is truely multi-demensional masterpiece. Vivid imagery. To me it's a futurist world depicting the watchful eye of government. Great cities in a vast galaxy on the super highway of space. Truely great work!

Julia Robson 03 Oct 2006

Truly amazing!

Artist Reply: Thanks Julia, for your lovely comment!!! It's hanging at my youngest wall in NY!~!

Chris Hoffman 28 Sep 2006

A truely groundbreaking phenominal piece. I just can't say enough!!

Ora Moon 19 Sep 2006

Very lovely work, I really like the spike through the eye, it reminds me of being pricked into visual action& Color intensity and layout works really well here too and I always love the texture created by working on canvas, something Ive never tried& Brightest Blessings&. :)

Stu Smith 19 Sep 2006

Nice colours and composition again although I worry about your sanity there Olga. Hope you're okay? ;-)

Totally awesome work...........this is MY kinda stuff Olga,truly Superb!, Well done Olga..........

Andrew Marx 16 Jul 2006

especially spacial...I can relate!!!

David Holcombe 16 Jul 2006

This is a visually complex piece. The intersecting straight lines and the floating balls, mixed with the two mysterious eyes makes for a lots of movement. It has the busy feeling of a dream, accentuated by the deliberate absence of any negative space. The title is, of course, a complimentary element and in six languages no less. (Ah, les reves sont vraiment une langage universelle.)

Ruud Janssen 15 Jul 2006

yes, this one i LIKE A LOT. Nice structures en such a dept. Thanks for showing us.

John A Birch 13 Jul 2006
