poster for Ulrike Stadler "Gelatin Print Monotypes"

This event has ended.

In 2009, fascinated by the cybernetics of gelatin monotype print making, Stadler embarked on an intense pursuit of the dynamics between layers of ink and the space they occupy, experimenting with the effect of different colors to each other and curtailing or expanding the space by covering areas with clipped paper or other opaque objects, or removing ink by washing the gelatin in other areas. Parts of the print would appear moving and changing in intensity as if engaged in deep conversations, even arguments. The outcome remained mostly unpredictable, depending on the objects and methods she used to create stencils. There was always a momentum of unpredictability, which created tension and excitement.

Stadler has been drawing and painting from early childhood on. Often she encountered stretches of interruptions, but she would always find a way to fulfill her need to create, and if only late at night at her kitchen table, and if not painting, it would be sculpture or ceramics or stained glass.

Stadler was born in Germany and received her B.A. at the Klosterschule in Hamburg. Art was one major she chose for her studies during the last three years, this being the only guided training in art she ever received. She continued to study philosophy and medieval languages at the University of Hamburg. In 1965 she immigrated to the United States where she lived for fifteen years before moving to Maine. In the summer of 2001 she opened her barn as a studio and gallery showing besides her own paintings the work of other contemporary American artists.
