AboutâUltra' by Luisa Agliatta, Bálint Bolygó, Philip Chudy, Eugenia Emets, Ray Massey, Rob Matheson, Moira Metcalfe, Damir Muratov, James Stroud and Nitin Vadukul.
The group exhibition âUltra' is the result of collaboration between artists well-established in the artistic community both nationally and internationally. They are represented in various museums of modern and contemporary art as well as private collections in the USA, the UK, Russia and Europe. Their backgrounds include paintings, drawings, etchings, filmmaking, photography, collages, sculptures and installation works.
The works that comprise âUltra' are the fruits of personal experiments and explorations (Eugenia Emets, Luisa Agliatta and James Stroud), experiences such as dreams and visions (Nitin Vadukul), observations from travelling and meeting people (Ray Massey and Philip Chudy) or, as in the case of Damir Muratov and Bálint Bolygó, intimate moments in the studio. My studio practice is wide ranging," explains Bolygó, "and I often spend hours in the darkroom as well as welding and doing all the engineering that my work requires. I guess what everything is tied up with is the idea of following a process whether it is etching, photography or making machines there is a fundamental natural pace and rhythm that the artist needs to tap into that's what I enjoy."
