MYSTIC VISION is a collection of photo-art works by Olga Merrill. She uses photography as a tool – like an instrument to make music or a brush for painting – to create an image of her vision, with a dreamy and indirect relationship to external reality.
Some images are essentially representative photography of the world around her that nevertheless dissolve into the wonder of abstract patterns, while others are complex manipulations of the ordinary visual world that use intentional camera movement, multiple exposures, and well planned color palettes to reflect her vision, dreams and feelings.
Merrill’s work has been part of group shows and festivals nationally and internationally, including NYC Center of Photography (USA) and Blank Wall Gallery, (Greece). YourDailyPhotograph.com just announced the selection of Brunswick, Maine artist Olga Merrill to the “YourDailyPhotograph.com Hot 100 of 2021” list for her photographic work, including her image "One and Many", which is part of her show, MYSTIC VISION. Merrill beat 4,500 artists from around the world to take home the prestigious honor.
