In “A Look beyond the Surface” there is no pursuit of any motif but colour and abstract substance. And yet in most of the pictures the beholder can see clearly floral ornaments emerging from the background of the surface of colour, despite the primarily abstract attitude. Like in a fabric drapery, the foreground and the background melt and gear into each other. The brushstrokes are often barely detectable and the real life of the images seems to come from behind the painted exterior. It is all reflection, like a distant mirror, the surface is clean and intensely smooth and yet with a depth and structure beyond its two-dimensional frame.

"I’m primarily an abstract painter, although with visible connection especially to landscape painting. My pictures are painted dynamically, on a grand scale. They emanate a wealth of color and latent emotion. The richness of color does not come from a wide range of colors, but how they are put together. I try to achieve a carefully thought-out and precisely linked construction of planes. Recently I started a series of figurative paintings, which deal mostly with people and their perception of arts. I’m right now fascinated with the world outside of a museum or an art fair but seen from inside a museum – it is a look out on the street: visitors, who just left or casual bystanders. Four such paintings are here attached." Ursula studied History of Art at Jagiellonian University in Cracow (diploma in Modern and Contemporary Art), which was followed by different studies (a. o. in Harvard, USA). She has been living in Vienna since long time, travelling extensively - especially to the Far East and to North America. She is primarily an abstract painter, although with visible connection especially to landscape painting. Recently she started a series of figurative paintings, which deal mostly with people and their perception of arts. One of the art critics wrote about her painting: "The pictures (...) are painted dynamically, on a grand scale. They emanate a wealth of colour and latent emotion. We enter a world of coloured stains, which suggest that space has given birth to something new, something worth recording. The artist constructs a pictorial space based on colour. The richness of colour does not come from a wide range of colours, but from her knowing how to put them together. She achieves a carefully thought-out and precisely linked construction of planes. Each ‘stain’ has its own logic, emotional and constructional. The paintings do not have formal geometry, but they certainly don’t lack structure, which comes from the twists and turns of the brush strokes. Each touch of the brush, contriving both breadth and synthesis, brings to the whole a character of unusual weight. It has a life of its own, and giving off an individual radiance it goes towards bringing about that overall harmony which can be likened to that of a musical symphony. A diversity of images arises from a palette of warm and cold colours whose rhythm, discreetly but unwaveringly, leads to a play of values.
