Olya Turcihin’s photographs convey explosions of color, texture and scale. Her exploration into the mundane and grimy parts of New York City that we unconsciously pass on a daily basis draws her and the viewer in. Finding the beauty in paint chips, rust, graffiti markings on crates, dumpsters and walls, in abstract form, she moves throughout the city, forgetting herself. Her eye instinctively and viscerally captures an insight into a transformative artistic experience that is hidden from everyday view.
