Inna Olshansky

I was Born in Russia and explored many different mediums and techniques prior to choosing to specialize in clay and oil paint. After obtaining a degree in Tashkent , I developed my own way of expression , while at the same time , continuing to demonstrate a broad free style . In 1993 I moved to Israel and opened " Inna Ol'shansky Art" , a gallery-boutique in Tel Aviv . 2013 was the first year, when I started using bronze for sculptural work, which I really enjoy to work in . For more than 20 years I have been an independent full-time Artist, during which I have had many exhibitions across Israel. I want to say a few words about my creative process)): I work very intuitively. Starting with a raw idea or concept, I usually have only a vague, nebulous collection of ideas to begin. As I set up the structure of the sculpture, the vision becomes more real and solid in my mind... the elements I want to use, the overall look of the form... the attitude of the head, the expression and shape of the face all start to become more solid in my imagination. One part of the design is confirmed, leading to the next and the next element. Until I get my hands on the clay, I am never sure exactly what the end result will be. My way of working is to be guided by my instincts and to let the flow of ideas take me where they will. The evolution of ideas, shapes, forms, technical challenges, and design elements constantly circulate through my mind until connections start to be made and the art comes though.
