Maria Ledo Olcoz

We are excited to be working with Maria Ledo Olcoz producing a series of decorative glass plates and table mats.

Antirretrato 13 (Antiportrait) series 1-24

Each plate in the series contains collages of her photographs of old dolls, found gadgets, objects of daily life, fragments of lives and landscapes. The plates are made from strengthened, recycled glass and are 20 cm in diameter and are heat resistant. They can be hung on a wall with an invisible hook or used as centre piece on a table. They can be sold individually or as a full series. There is an option for a set of 4 plates in a luxury black gift box. Click on the images to enlarge and slideshow.

About the artist

Maria received a BA in Fine Arts at the University of Salamanca. Her series of ‘anti- portraits’, painted on blocks of bright colours border on pop aesthetics. They have a dreamlike surrealism due to the intensity of the looks and the atmospheres created by the self-absorption of the subjects, often taken from old magazines or old photographs. Olcoz introduces collage into her portraits with her own photographic works in which the images contain found objects. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions throughout Spain, in London and in Los Angeles.

Original artworks are for sale from Saatchi Art
