    Ursula Kellett, 2019               

    Mixed media on aluminium

    Size: D45cm

    This piece is part of a new series of work by Ursula experimenting with different materials on round aluminium panels. Ursula pours transparent lacquers, combined with natural pigment (indigo, lapis, turmeric, vanilla, copper etc.), inks, earths and sands onto the aluminium. The outcome is unpredictable as gravity and the chemistry of the different materials create shapes that seem to be frozen in time. Unexpected colours, shifting forms and textures appear where substances meet, creating a colourful patchwork of glasslike appearance and quality.

    Ursula Kellett PainterArtist: Ursula Kellett

    Ursula has always been fascinated by the confrontation between urban and natural landscapes – the contrast between the gritty, commercialised streets of her hometown London and the lush greenery of its wild spaces and heaths. Her travels, too, have taken her from the shanty towns of Rio to Brazil’s humid rain forests, from the bleached city of Albuquerque to the endless desert of surrounding New Mexico.

    The materials she uses reflect these conflicting elements – sand, earth and natural pigments versus man-made varnishes, plastics and metal. In bringing them together, her work mirrors our experience of contemporary city life, the abrasive but also beautiful vibrations of modern living.
