Eva Ullrich is a landscape artist who's work leans more towards abstraction. Born in the Lake District (UK), she studied painting at The Glasgow School of Art when she spent time exploring the highlands and coastline of Scotland. This experience of landscape has always been a starting point for her work.
More recently Eva has gained inspiration from numerous research trips travelling to remote locations in arctic Norway and Iceland and the very particular qualities of light that occur there.
In the studio she is concerned with the physicality of the process, experimenting with diverse and dynamic mark making. Using paintings inherent language, 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.
Ultimately she is interested in the comparison between this meditative space available to the viewer and being surrounded by nature itself.
