Reflections on the works of an artist – Notes to a colleague

Works by the Danish artist Jeanette.Uldall.

The collage - collected pleasures and sad modes together in the timeless illusion of paintings.

Fragments and small sensations of everyday life shining in bright colours - breaking into fantasy and pink eroticism.

Can painting be a way for sadness and pleasure to merge into each other? Is loneliness colourful or, reversely, is a Danish rainy day
simply so wonderfully fruitful in its visual abundance of detail that it only takes a quiet eye to see it?

The painter seems to work in Nature like Monet did – 'Nature is my studio', as he said. In the case of J.U., nature is rendered in both
abstraction, expression, symbolism, impression and half-figuration and leaves the viewer with an image of 'collaging' associations to
nature, yet remote from nature - bringing forth another dimension of the artist's emotions.

The sky is pink and suggests pleasure rather than following the colour-palette of nature itself. The leaves become red circles dancing
next to blue stripes. And so the painting transforms itself into a universe of its own with its own laws of gravity and composition - therefore
ending up in a surreal and personal imagery that cannot be understood with language. We have to look and with the guidance of the
painter take pleasure in the colours.

Is she suggesting a Utopia like that of a child knowing very little of the brutality of the world? Is she constructing an Eden like the Eden
suggested by Matisse in his imagery, or is such a Utopia inexplicably combined with sorrow – a paradox of the eternal delicacy of
humanity?
