I’ve been thinking about Ula Einstein’s art over the past several months, ever since she contacted me about her work. My overall 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 lightweight airy paper works so complexly patterned. Even the color spots in the artist’s mixed media originals and prints contain an illusion that they are free-floating forms.
As she encompasses so much territory, Ula refers to herself as a “multi-disciplinary” artist “engaged with fragility and substance.”
Ula Einstein’s “mixed media” materials include paper, fire, hot glue, color pencils, and inks, as she employs the active techniques of burning, cutting, crumpling, tearing, piercing, erasing, taping, and stitching, among other actions. Ula sums up all this activity by simply stating — “making is part of the content.”
The art originals in Ula’s 2014-’15 Vortex in Orbit series, ©Ula Einstein, consist of Prismacolor premium color pencils, fire, and hot glue. Limited Edition prints from the originals are digitized on a Cruse Scanner and professionally printed using archival pigments, and then signed and numbered in the edition by the artist.
Prints and artworks can also be commissioned to larger sizes to meet your needs. Contact the artist via her website here.
Ula Einstein also creates installations in components in her studio, which she then reconfigures for each exhibition.
Ula Einstein is a highly visible New York City artist who exhibited several of her paper works at the 2015 Flux Art Fair seen here in photos published in a Hyperallergic feature. Üla’s work is internationally exhibited in galleries, museums, and non-profit art spaces, and are in numerous art collectors private art collections.
