Overview

Using the intrinsic language of paint, Eva is able to simplify her work to create bold, confident pieces that capture the essence of specific places, or natural events with great atmosphere and a submersive quality.

Eva Ullrich is a landscape artist whose work leans more towards abstraction. Most of her paintings were created after trips to Arctic Norway and Iceland, where she explored the coast and travelled into the remote interior, exploring lava fields, glaciers and volcanos. Whilst exploring the landscape, she took photographs and made quick paint sketches on location as methods of observing particular features in the landscape and the often dramatic and changing qualities of light at different times of day. She then makes her paintings from memory upon her return to the studio.

 

She paints them flat using wide brushes, sponges and squeegees, constantly adding, removing and manipulating the paint until it feels right. Some paintings are very simple, made up of only two layers, and others are much more complex with multiple layers and glazing.
