This stunning original piece by Olivier Rasir was created two years ago and purchased through Paddington art dealer Art 2 Muse. Mixed media on raw canvas floating in framed box.

Olivier Rasir, born in Momalle, Liege, Belgium 1973, immigrated to Australia in 1995. Olivier has exhibited around Sydney and his works are held in private and corporate collections in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Germany, USA, UK, Singapore and Belgium.

Olivier’s paintings come from a place of impulsion and poetic expression, where one material or mark will inform the next. Olivier paints both the front and back of raw canvas, allowing colours to bleed through to form a background rich with incidental tonal variation. In Olivier’s practice there is a strong focus on energy and movement, and the different ways these qualities can become imbued in still painting. In some works, raw canvas is pushed, pulled and folded to create lines, shadows and contours, much like paint itself.

Purchased for $4950 plus $880 framing.
