The World Through Rose-Colored Lenses According to Olivia d'Aboville

  • by The Cartellino Team

From around the '40s to the early '60s, the color field movement has emerged. Artists like Mark Rothko, Helen Frankenthaler, and Barnett Newman have been some of the prominent names who've pioneered the movement. Inspired by the movement, Olivia d'Aboville diverts from monochromatic palettes to bright hues of handwoven abaca and polyester. Focusing on the positivities that surround her personal life, d'Aboville celebrates life in works that fuse a play on colors, shapes, and textures.
