Presented by: The Incubator Creative Hub
We welcome Ulemj back to the Incubator Gallery for another outstanding exhibition of her art that she has been working on, over the last couple of years.
Ulemj has this to say about this exhibition: My work is closely connected to the themes of belonging, acceptance, and communication. Through my work, I express my feelings, and strive to connect and evoke a response in the imagination of the viewer. This goes beyond what is happening at the surface (real or imagined).
Ulemj uses traditional materials such as, oils, acrylics, charcoal, pastels, ink, spray paints and a dash of collage. She experiments to see what surprising final effect can be achieved. She does not plan her mark making, She lets the paint and marks dictate her steps.
Concentrating on the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi deeply resonates with her; as it is about the transient nature of life and its imperfections. Ulemj’s desire is to inspire people to look more carefully at the world around them, and to discover beauty in imperfection.
Ulemj spent her youth growing up in a socialist Mongolia, while attending a Russian kindergarten and primary school. She spent a great deal of her childhood reading and daydreaming of a fantasy world. During her teenage years, she travelled to the UK by herself and went on to do further university studies in Japan. Living and studying in seven different countries in all, exposed her to an eclectic mix of culture and she found the need to learn to be flexible and accepting.
