Enigmatic and uniquely creative, Olga Karlovac’s mysterious but alluring portrayals in black and white have become a much admired signature style.Atmospheric, and rich with emotion, her imagery resonates a melancholic beauty and invites one to take a poetic journey into the shadows as a fellow conspirator.
Zagreb and Dubrovnik are the ‘theatre stages’ for her dramatic and enchanting images featuring abstract, lone and collective figures. Her compositions reflect a dream world glanced through rain, shadows, glass, and moisture– core elements that Karlovac regularly appropriates for her compositions.The artist’s worldwide audience is growing through the significant impact of her chosen medium, the photo-book, where she keeps total control over every stage of production.
The release of the successful Before Winter (1st edition) a virtual sell out, lead to her latest publication The Disarray.
