Olive Ayhens

01.06.18 bis 15.07.18

Olive Ayhens’ paintings frequently evolves from a special sense of place and

transformation of environments in her own quirky ways. Sometimes there is a

political/ecological subtext but always the love of the paint itself. Color is her first

language, she has fun with personification and improbabilities of scale, thin and

thick paint etc. She is a recipient of the Joan Mitchell Fellowship, a Guggenheim

Fellowship, two Pollock/Krasner’s, and the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Individual

Support Grant. She’s been a resident at the Sharpe/Walentas Studio space, the

MacDowell Colony, Ucross, Yaddo, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Roswell

among other residencies. She received her M.F.A. from the San Francisco Art
