Eva Ullrich is a landscape artist who's work leans more towards abstraction. Born in the Lake District, she studied painting at 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.
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 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.
