Una Ursprung - Following Nature
Una Ursprung was born in Taiwan and now lives and works in Basel, Switzerland. Following Nature, will be Una’s first ever solo show in the UK, following her inclusion in our #LockdownEditions initiative during the first lockdown in 2020.
Her work features a combination of oil painted serene and calm natural imagery with contrasting and sometimes chaotic abstract shapes rendered in spray paint directly over the top.
Humanity’s position as the blight upon the environment is especially noticeable in 2021 – the year of pandemics, flash floods, and wildfires. In creating these timeless yet immediately relevant works Una is forcing the viewer to look beyond the beauty we see around us, and to question what effect we are having upon it.
