The symbolism woven into Onli's collections of Rhythmistic paintings communicates deeply held values of power, meditation, diversity,  exaggeration, empathy and a narrative that explores the practice of art making and the active appreciation of the visual picture plane.

"Cool Globes" Hot Ideas for a cooler Planet.

 "We were fortunate to be included in the Cool Globe Public Art Program.  I hired a few of my students and we worked in the Hyde Park Art Center of Chicago because I needed a larger studio space.  The globe was too large for my studio's doorway. I am forever grateful to the staff of the Hyde Park Art Center for offering their space."

"Itz A Rhtyhmistic World" is the title and it is about humanity united to fight global warming along with toxic emissions from idling school buses and cars. This duel theme was a fantastic way to blend my expertise as a fine artist, educator, illustrator and concerned citizen.
