Henrik Aa. Uldalen – Figures Suspended in Limbo

by Jane KenoyerPosted on

Occasionally we come across an artist who’s paintings are unexpectedly beautiful and haunting, Henrik Uldalen is one of those artists. His work has a common theme of dreaming figures often depicted with their eyes closed, afloat in the atmosphere. Uldaen’s weightless figures seem to be suspended in limbo and float effortlessly off the edges of the canvas into vast white expanses.

Uldalen is a self taught artist who incorporates classic figurative painting in a contemporary way. His work evokes an Mc Escher like aesthetic with complex staircases and gravity deifying figures that seemingly exist in a suspended sleeping state where they are completely unaware of the restrictions of physical reality. – Jane Kenoyer
