Olga was an invented persona who first appeared in my paintings around 1982…
I had mostly forgotten about Olga, the hulking silent muse from my college era paintings. A professor had described her as some sort of mythical medieval scrub woman. She was an incomprehensible alter-ego that I used with art school irony. She was also a hatchway to an inner world for processing personal allegory.
All these years later I named my 3D printing company Olgaforce3D, with that same self-amused irony. And just as before, the surface humor transitioned into something else. This archetypal figure resonates with mystery and creative purpose; it signals me to do the same. I formed this company to offer fairly straightforward 3D printing solutions, but the true power of Olgaforce3D is innovative creativity.
With this in mind, I have revamped Olgaforce3D to be a repository for new ideas, both technological and artistic. Watch for unusual 3D Print Models, free and crowdfunded downloadable files, Workshops for 3D printing and Cinematic VR, and more!
It’s going to be an exciting new direction for us all!
All my best,
