Paintings by Henrik Aarrestad Uldalen
New works continuing on the theme of figures in some sort of dream-like state while focusing on atmosphere rather than narrative, leaving his paintings subject to different interpretations. Henrik explores the dark sides of life, nihilism, existentialism, longing and loneliness, juxtaposed with fragile beauty.

Photos by Yuriko Kubota
Artworks using a double-layer technique, which involves placing two photographs on top of each other and meticulously cutting sections or strips of the top layer to reveal the image underneath.
This merging of two images creates an effect of vibration, where movement and stillness play off each other, and lines between two and three-dimensional space are blurred.
Paintings by Ariel DeAndrea
Paintings exploring the movement, life, and spirituality in the design and symbolism of an origami crane featured in bodies of water. The lifeless object is brought to life as it travels on the surface, riding along the current as if it were flying.
I feel that in my style of painting I am able to further breath life into the symbol of one solitary crane by placing it in real life situations where it gets to behave as a real bird would, riding with the current or the water, nestled amongst plants and interacting with the human form so that it might take on greater symbolism as a talisman of hope.
