Portraits

Olga-Valeska-2-600x899

It is always interesting to me to see a modern artist draw inspiration from past art movements and create contemporary pieces based on characteristics of previous styles. In this article found on visualnews.com, the artist Olga Valeska creates beautiful photographs of magical scenes which many times incorporate the alluring aspects of nature. She also expresses deep emotions in the photographs, which was often a characteristic seen in works by Romantic artist. I can’t help but to think that if photography were available to the artist of Romanticism this may be similar to photographs they themselves would take. Check out more of her photographs, as well as the one posted above, here http://www.visualnews.com/2012/01/11/romantic-art-fantasy-in-self-portraits/ .
