'oLa' collection

The 'oLa' collection is an extensive collection of of special shapes that emerge during my dreams. I capture these in collages & then work with them through my art projects to create a range of different sub-series.  These give rise to a kind of 'human story'.  

oLa is my own concept and stands for Open Language Art.  It is ‘Open’ because the shapes create a strong sense of openness, while ‘Language’ refers to the meanings they convey (I originally trained as a translator), as well as the fact that many people have told me the symbols remind them of ancient languages. The collection now includes about 40 shapes.
