Olan Ventura: Glitched Paintings

5 Sep 2019

Olan Ventura’s paintings and his recent exhibition Colour Feast at Yavuz Gallery are featured in Colossal.

“Replicating the smallest details of iconic works such as Jan Davidsz de Heem’s Vase of Flowers (c. 1660), Ventura veers off course with striking glitches and drips that shoot off the canvas edges, seeming to pull grapes, lobsters, and roses from the past into the present.”
