Signed Midnight Olive (Olivia Guterson) is a Detroit-based creative and community organizer. She is deeply influenced by the textures, landscapes as well as, her Jewish and African heritage; her work focuses predominately in black and white for its stability, intensity, and honesty.
This piece imprints family lines and energy patterns steeped in hardship and trauma, but also great resilience, strength, joy, and power. Recalling patterns and handiwork typically attributed to women in her family, this work emerges from commotion to conclude in a consuming, intricate, yet delicate scene.
