Olga Muravina

«The sculptures by Olga Muravina have a rare quality to please in everyday life, and not only in a gallery or museum. This is living art that you want to keep next to you as a necessary beautiful thing. Her sculptures appeal to deep emotions of playing, security, and tactile communication with the world while at the same time building an aesthetic distance in relation to those non-reflective and basically childish energies that inspire her creativity.

Olga Muravina virtuously masters the form and endows it with the most delicate brutality, perhaps in order to neutralize the pathos that accompanies the maestra and the medium of mastery itself – stone and bronze. Besides those materials of eternity, Shakespeare’s reminder that we are made of the same substance as dreams seems less poetry than a bare fact of reality. Olga Muravina transfers the transitoriness of dreams into materials of eternity, and creates sculptures as a stunning fact of our poetic existence”.

A. Evangeli / Curator, art critic and theorist of contemporary art
