poster for Ulrike Stadler “Tulips Dying and Crying”

This event has ended.

I planted tulip bulbs next to a sliding door which leads from my studio into the front yard. The first spring they blossomed beautifully. When the time came that they started to wilt I was thrilled by the changes the whole plants slowly underwent. Not only that they produced the most fascinating colors, but stems and leaves underwent amazing contortions where leaves turned into weather beaten sails and stems started to crawl like snakes on the ground.”

Stadler uses vibrant brushstrokes to celebrate the lifecycle of a flower in twelve paintings. Using encaustic,—a medium that only hardens and never dries – Stadler paints the wilting process in brilliant hues. Based on paintings made over two thousand years ago, the intensity of the medium gives the impression of having been only created yesterday.

Born in Germany, Stadler received a B.A. in Fine Art at the Klosterschule in Hamburg focusing additionally in philosophy and medieval languages at the University of Hamburg. In 1965, she immigrated to New York City and in the early 1990’s she permanently moved to Maine. Her only guided training in art took place during the last three years of school while working towards her B.A. Since then, her education consisted of studying the work of other artists. Rilke once said in his letters to a young poet that the most profound things take place in a realm beyond words. “It is the process of painting that I find most important. Painting is the means by which I work through those things I cannot address with reason or rationale. At the same time, it is always a celebration in and of color.” Stadler has exhibited work in New York and Maine for more than 30 years, and her paintings are held in private collections in the U.S and Internationally. Stadler has been a member of the Amos Eno Gallery in New York since 1996.
