Eva Ullrich is a landscape artist who's work leans more towards abstraction. Born in the Lake District, 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.
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.
Ultimately Eva is interested in the comparison between this meditative space available to the viewer and the feeling of being surrounded by nature itself. Since graduating Eva has had significant success. At the RSA Scottish New Contemporaries Exhibition in 2012 she won the Stevenston Award for a painter of merit and from that she was one of six young artists selected to exhibit in GENERATION 2014.
She now lives and works in Bristol and continues to exhibit internationally.”
