Review of Where I Interject by Ulrika Anderson
THE PRIVATE VIEW OF
‘Where I Interject’ by Ulrika Anderson
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
DegreeArt.com is proud to announce the successful opening of their latest solo exhibition ‘Where I Interject’ by Ulrika I K Anderson. The gallery opened its doors to over 800 spectators during the May First Thursday event.
In the thoughtfully lit gallery space, visitors were greeted by Ulrika’s neatly executed figurative paintings that more resembled moody film stills than every day portraits. In her work Ulrika toys with optical illusion and light to create an intimate viewing experience.
'Perhaps there is no consensus to how we experience reality, but my paintings represent my memory of reality. They become my projected construction of nostalgia. I find things become too literal and defined if you think about them directly, but a story through painting can be revelatory.' – Ulrika Andersson
WHAT THE PUBLIC HAD TO SAY
‘Love the fresh approach to painting from photographs; though it all seems very realistic it still has retained some of the artist interpretation to how she remembers the subject and the scene she recreats. The cinematic feel and bold colors reminds me of 50s movie stills.’ Artist & Psychologist
‘The show was moody and yet refreshing. I like how she used a tennis court as her initial inspiration and totally reinterpreted it by using displacement and bold colours to form this psychologically charged, nostalgic story of one girl.’ Architect
Show Runs till 29th June 12-6pm
