Simply in the mood for details.

 

A tiny spec of paint is crystalized and casts back at you, a painting is being interactive. Reflective surfaces like glitter, metal leaf and mirror shards serve many functions in this work. Surfaces emerge with overlapping perceptual possibilities. A mark can be both a tree and an eye; a coin can be a pinball, a planet, or just a coin.

 

The folly of humanity is that we precipitously create only to ultimately discard. However, this cycle can also lead to true adventure and discovery, even the possibility of bliss. Trash, dried herbs, price tags, broken CDs, string all become part of the experience in a Mike Olin work.

 

This is an updated romanticism that is in awe of nature; it listens to the land and is in touch with the rhythm of the universe, finding the sublime in many places, without relying on purity or hierarchies.

Mike Olin’s paintings challenge our notion of a single reading. The work is an embrace of abstraction and landscape with narrative possibilities. They invite the viewer to approach and absorb the works in a variety of ways. The layering of symbols and materials, which range from painterly spidery forms, to glass shards and coins force us to read multiple signs at once creating new archetypes of signification and interpretation. Olin has shown his paintings throughout New York City for nearly two decades.
