January 2016 by Maria Kazalia **I’ve been thinking about Ula Einstein’s art over the past several months…and my impression is that her artworks are simultaneously detailed and minimal. It can become something of a conundrum thinking about this dichotomy. Yet that’s what stays with me–her various weighty and airy paper works so complexly patterned….the color in the artist’s mixed media originals and prints contain an illusion that they are free-floating …
My sensibility is that of a builder. Chance, control and uncertainty are collaborative elements in exploring the potential of tools and materials beyond their original function. Surfaces, alluding to skin, artifacts, topographies, are the tactile connection between the interior and exterior. I’m interested in what is not readily apparent; my frequent experience that things are not as they first appear. I think about the human condition, in motion, beauty, and creative tensions
