Olivia's paintings cultivate a feeling of "emptiness of stability", where human presence is indicated by the simple architectural forms that break the horizon of his two-color landscapes line bifurcate the canvas in an interaction of tangible and in-tangible states our perception.
Les tableaux d’Olivia cultivent un sentiment de « stabilité du vide », où la présence humaine est indiquée par les formes architecturales simples qui rompent la ligne d’horizon de ses paysages bicolores, etfont bifurquer la toile dans une interaction des états tangible etintangible de notre perception.

Parsons Recommends: Olivia Boudet, The Golden Light at Fred Torres Gallery
Olivia Boudet hails from the French Riviera where light, space, and sea define a reality, which is both expansive and strangely abstract. So, it is not surprising that Boudet’s paintings, in particular, cultivate a sense of stable emptiness where human presence is indicated by the simple architectural forms that break the carefully devised horizon line bifurcating the canvas into a dual color visual interplay of the tangible and intangible states of perception. Her color palette is based on soft pastels combined with a visual rigor and controlled spatial organization. It is that combination of sophisticated color combinations with the rigor of reduced form that gives these works both a visual tension and capacity to absorb the viewer.
