This painting is part of a series made after a trip exploring the snow covered mountains of arctic Norway. On this trip I used photography and quick paint sketches on location as methods of observation and immersing myself in the particular character of the area. 'Shadow’ was made back in the studio. I paint flat using wide brushes, sponges and squeegees. I wanted to capture the stillness of the landscape and the clarity of light that gives the arctic such a unique quality.
Eva Ullrich is a landscape artist who's work leans more towards abstraction. She studied painting at The Glasgow School of Art when she spent a great deal of time exploring the Scottish landscape. This experience of landscape has always been a starting point for her work. In the studio she is concerned with the physicality of the process, experimenting with diverse and dynamic mark making. 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. Ultimately she is interested in the comparison between this meditative space available to the viewer and the feeling of being surrounded by nature itself.
