I draw inspiration from human beauty and the female form. As a teenager, I wanted to be a fashion designer and today, it is still the world of fashion, lifestyle and design that informs my ‘sujet’ and taste the most. I like to paint female figures and to “dress” them in shapes and patterns, but in the end it’s still about the overall design and composition of the whole painting.
Apart from sheer human beauty, I find the human expression very diverse and strong, providing an endless source of inspiration. Usually though, I’m drawn to subjects displaying a certain nonchalance, strength and independence.
I like painting with bright solid colors in acrylic and oil. As a lover of patterns, I also often use decoupage to set contrasts with very fine graphics. Also, I have found the “dripping technique” to be a recurring feature in my works. I just love the natural and organic shapes it creates, and find it gives a very unique aspect to every classic object and subject matter. ~ Wencke Uhl
