Statement

 


In Uliana's works we see a contrast between big forms and tiny shapes revealing her feeling of controversy about our place in the world and the choices we make. These incessant existential thoughts swirling in her mind and moving her hands express themselves as tiny little curves on her artwork. Having lived in different countries has helped Uliana to familiarize with other cultures and develop independent points of view and a fresh look that helps her to create new forms.
