She returns to Europe in 1985; in London, she resumes her studies, she works, presents an exhibition and had her first encounter with Francis Bacon�s works at Tate Gallery.
The Mexican historian and art critic, Jos� Manuel Springuer pointed out that
At thirty years old Olga Sinclair, crosses the line that separates the good artist from the Master�, and states: �She has walked different roads that have taken her from figures to abstraction, returned to the figure with historic character and back to experimentation with pictorial space. She has a formalistic part of European character, more focused towards plastic experimentation and art concept. She synthesizes both moments.
In 2007, she develops a new artistic experience under the guidance of her Mexican teacher, Alfia Leyva del Valle: sculpture: She presents her works with the exhibition �It is the Pear!� in Mexico and Panama. In 2009, Arte al D�a of Miami, FL, publishes her great catalogue raisonn�e �Olga Sinclair: Works 1995-2008
El arte de Olga Sinclair es eminentemente femenino sin ser feminista�

Pink, purple, green, orange, yellow, and warm tones, giving a strong body , which granted its mix touches of white space, as if the fabric suffered an electric shock: where the background color is wider and longer, then the brush creates vibrations and dynamism.
Sinclair's paintings are boldly executed, born to a shadow of opening in the path of art history.

The peculiarity of Olga�s work lies in the arrangement of the form (�) the objects (kind of), and in the reflection of light rays, which shape the global sphere of her work.
In Olga Sinclair�s work, time is arbitrary and unpredictable; it crosses established dimensions and links present and past, preterit and imperfect. These leaps and variations settle in the work, fermenting from one painting to the next, until a general solution, very typical of this time in a constant state of transition is reached: The permanence of the ephemeral.
