OLGA ZIEMSKA is a sculptor and public artist that lives & works in Cleveland, Ohio. She believes art is a tool for understanding life that should help us discover how our minds create all these visions of reality and comprend our place in the world.
Art is a way to return to nature, making the human body part of the whole. It shows how easily the body can blend in, mesh and disappeare into that which surrounds it – in an ever-changing reflection.

STILLNESS IN MOTION – THE MATKA SERIES #1
Stillness in motion: The Matka Series is a new body of work that explores the concept of place. In this ongoing series I will be using locally harvested trees that grow native to an area to create a female figure in different countries all around the world. The word “matka” in Polish means mother, a person that is significant to the idea of place, origin and our first physical environment—the womb. This work will be a sculptural documentation and visual research of the significance of place through examining the distinctive visual characteristics of an areas native plant life and of its’ natural environment. Through the repetition of the human form, the subtle characteristics of each environment will emerge naturally and visually. This body of work is ultimately a celebration of the diversity of place and also a homage to the similarities that underlie all things at their core.
