UBA OWLBerkeley, CA
Uba Owl is a founding member of a new interdisciplinary art movement, Alterrealism.
Passionate about political and social issues, she often touches these subjects in her art. Through color and line Uba Owl creates a sustained emotional effect despite multiple narrative tensions. There is a sense of quiet power, of emergence and beginnings, of wisdom against an anticipated struggle. This is a bold departure from much male-dominated Western art, which often chooses a concrete narrative image while creating sub-surface ambiguities of emotion. It is a painting of intuition itself, succeeding in the far more difficult and demanding task of capturing a way of feeling.
