Ones to Watch: Olivia Shimeld

THE ART EDIT TEAM PRESENTS THE ARTISTS ON ITS RADAR RIGHT NOW.

With a background in electronic and temporal art, Blue Mountains-based artist Olivia Shimeld has found a way to give her paintings a uniquely digital aesthetic. Her ethereal abstract landscapes, night skies and floral assemblages flash with vibrant neon colours layered atop one another, creating a depth of space reminiscent of a digital screen. Olivia uses high quality acrylic, oil and aerosol paints for her works which she intuitively allows to drip and splatter onto her canvas. At once meditative and energetic, Olivia’s work asks for contemplation as it blurs material boundaries.
