Painter Henrik Aa. Uldalen brings riveting new portraits to JD Malat Gallery with his new show, “Lethe.” The artist, who crafted the cover for Hi-Fructose Vol. 24, is known for his impasto, highly emotive paintings. “Lethe” opens December 13 and runs through January 11, 2020.
“The artist explains that people who relate to his works have a disposition to melancholy but that with these new paintings he hopes to touch a multitude of art lovers, all of which have a tendency towards beauty,” the gallery says. “His work takes form very intuitively with little to no planning. He describes his technique as a constant experiment with paints and solvents, a push and pull of movement combining the two mediums. He works in a layering process constantly adding paint to improve the surface of the canvas.”
