Inspired by the Golden Age painters and their humility in describing the details and substance of their subjects, Ulla Lundsgart is a modern Danish artist with a unique style and vision. Her beautifully rendered florals explore the relationship between the three-dimensional abstract and the concrete. “The relationship between that which we see and the reality that lies behind,” says Lundsgart. “Everything in nature is inspired and originates from… an underlying structure.” There is movement and grace in every work. Colors ebb and flow around each canvas, revealing a fresh spontaneity that seems serendipitous and random.
Intricate and delicate, Lundsgart’s flowers are painted as portraits, expressing both consciousness and sensuality. Each work eloquently conveys the dimensions, the extravagance, and the abundance of nature’s eternal desire to express itself and sublimate. Rich pastels and inspirational detailing underscore Lundsgart’s sensitivity and appreciation for nature’s endless diversity, its colorful bounty. There is passion and commitment in every brushstroke, allowing the artist to engage us, and to draw us into what we so often take for granted.
