In the studio with Olivia

Olivia Longstaff explores the creative fathoms of paint itself. Utilising raw, un-primed canvases, Longstaff applies blocks of impasto paint to her surfaces, layering an abundance of turpentine over the top to erode the painted areas. The final effect is a symposium of colour and shape, emerging through the many veils of turpentine and canvas.

Abstract art in its rawest sense, as Longstaff deconstructs the act of painting. The artist describes this process as: ‘a line between something that is being formed and something that is falling apart.’
