Olla Vogala

From the need to let go of control in the design proces and to work more in a experimental way, my pseudonym 'Olla Vogala' was born (This name comes from one of the oldest Dutch poems and means 'All the birds'). I developed techniques which mimic natural processes through physical actions, chemical reactions and color. In nature, fast processes lead to grow of fungus and over a long period to the creation of marble. Treating painting as a recipee rather than a medium, these works are produced by combining various paints with other acidic, toxic or natural substances unknown to traditonal marble techniques. This leads to a unique result that can be applied on any surface or 3 dimensional object. Central in this way of working is the ongoing experiment. Like a virus, the psychedelic colored prints spread out like a skin over existing products and surfaces. They function as an optical drug to reach a euphoric mental state.
