Henrik Uldalen's Glass Paintings

January 30, 2017

We've shown you the paintings of Henrik Uldalen before, but this morning we admire a series of paintings on glass that he did. Uldalen is a self-taught artist whose creative production revolves around classic figurative painting, presented in a contemporary manner. Henrik explores the dark sides of life, nihilism, existentialism, longing and loneliness, juxtaposed with fragile beauty. The atmosphere in his subject matter is often presented in a dream or limbo-like state, with elements of surrealism. His focus on atmospheres rather than narratives and realism leaves his painting open for many interpretations.
