Fluidity Informs Olga De La Iglesia’s Practice

There is a generation of young women reshaping the art world from Barcelona—Olga de la Iglesia is one of them. They are multi-hyphenates, using social media platforms to gain creative traction, and either blurring the lines between creative genres or making expressive leaps between them. De la Iglesia describes herself as an “imager”; so fluid is her conception of the role of an artist. Of all of her work, it was her photography that caught our attention; fashion with a documentary edge, strange still lifes against brightly colored backgrounds, and monochromatic arrangements of ordinary objects. Her perceptive positioning of people and places deftly illustrate her ‘outside the box’ style.
