Olan Ventura reverses the approach to the timeless strategy of telling a story through portraiture — literally. See, Olan works with the negative imagery: the total inversion of a positive image. This reversal works on both the literal and metaphorical level, allowing viewers to see the inverted colors as well as to imagine an entire value system turned upon its head. The subversive aspect of his artistic approach cannot be emphasized enough. And Olan chose as subjects two iconic figures in world history: Andy Warhol and Albert Einstein, representing the realms of Art and Science. Two figures that have turned their respective fields upon their heads. Two figures portrayed to death on the canvases of pop culture. Warhol changed what came before him. So did Einstein. By choosing these subjects, Olan subverts the iconography, presenting a different dimension to two familiar faces. Portraiture is not dead — so goes Olan Ventura's philosophy — as long as an artist finds news ways of portraying the always-portrayed. Consider it a new way of seeing.
