Olivier is a painter in search of new avenues. In his new work No Title (480-620), he offers the viewer a journey through the many layers of paint on his canvas. At the convergence of painting and cinema, however, lies an uneasy tension, a feeling that something is about to happen, or has just happened, that is unexpected and beyond our control. Although his early works contain many realistic elements, Olivier sets no thematic agenda for the works or for their relationship to one another. They are enigmatic and experiential. His latest piece is on the edge of abstraction and the more successfully he lifts the veil on the traces and decisions made by the artist in the process of painting.
