His works offer a blend of mid-century modern and noir aesthetics seen through a contemporary, fashion-inflected lens. The ambiance of the series presented in this volume the first time these three bodies of work have been presented as a whole is truly enigmatic and enticing. Olaf seduces the viewer via a mannered, restrained palette that is replete with faded avocado greens, golden-hued oranges, and subtle lilacs. This project was made possible, in part, by generous support from the Mondriaan Foundation, Amsterdam; Hasted Hunt Gallery, New York; and the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York.
