In-depth Interview- “Ula Einstein is a New York City-based artist who is remarkably in tune with her process. I would say she does a better job at describing her work and inspirations than many artists I’ve interviewed to date. From the humble to the sublime” http://artbookguy.com/ula-einstein-ordinary-meets-sacred_758.html
A Swiss born, multi-disciplinary artist, Üla’s work is internationally exhibited in galleries, museums, and non-profit art spaces, and included among numerous collectors.
Einstein enjoys guest lecturing about art/process, and engaging with the public.
Using the inspiration of the material’s characteristics as a starting point, the urge to change, advance, conceal, and unconceal, as the particular work takes form, Ula engages re-metabolizing and transformation. In her expanded practice, she is influenced by skin: the tactile connection between the interior and exterior, artifacts and topographies; exploring surface, hybrid works, organic and synthetic, and the space between painting and sculpture. With gestures including cut, crumple, burn, tear, tape, pierce, stitch, bind, erase, drawing out, and layering, material and process, revelatory of each other; making is part of the content. Her installations – components created in the studio, are reconfigured in each exhibition. Further stretching the work is the paradox of substance/fragility, shadow/light, destruction/creation, absence/presence.
