Irene Hardwicke Olivieri s enchanting, idiosyncratic, and curiously complex artworks explore the subterranean aspects of life love and relationships, secrets and obsessions all the while opening a window to what she calls the mysterious workshop of nature. In Irene Hardwicke Olivieri: Closer to Wildness, we witness an artist infinitely inspired by the natural world. Her intricate paintings are laced with knowledge of the cougars, wood rats, caterpillars, and other animal familiars. These lovingly rendered, often-surreal beings allegorize challenges and discoveries encountered on life s journey. Neither humans nor animals are simple portraits under Olivieri s brush; her works explore the wildness within and without.
