Martha Olson works with altered papers to create new works of art. She begins by recycling glossy magazine pages that are altered by crumpling, tearing, cutting, and applying a releasing agent to dissolve the ink printed in the paper. Each page produces a one-of-a-kind image and color palette that gets filed and collected. She applies many layers of paper to draw the viewer in for closer inspection, allowing them to discover and experience surprise images and personal interpretations. "On the Street Where You Live" presents all new original works. This show embodies what one might discover on streets and neighborhoods near and far, real or imagined. "I have always searched for a medium to express the long unspoken artistic language that I knew was a part of me. Altered paper has provided a visual voice releasing memories of silent observation, or life experiences, or a turn of a word or a phrase." - Martha Olson
