"My work is the science of contemplation and reflection of my inner emotions laid onto canvas. My understanding of art is synesthetic. The voice in my head that relays my emotions to me have beautiful colors and images attached to them. It is about bringing the world of feeling into the physical. Each specific artwork of mine is a unique envelopment of specific emotions, each stroke of my brush with its designated color palate, is a physical depiction of how my mind views a specific feeling as a scheme of colors. Each work is like a door opening into a fantasy, a passage into a world of color, filled with wonder."
Ursula Schwartz was born and raised in South Africa. Her roots and connection with Africa remains to be the continuous inspiration for her work. Her tenacious attitude to embrace new beginnings and take on challenges is a result of her upbringing in Africa. Art making is her passion and this talent revealed itself early in her childhood.
Ursula works with oil paint and occasionally adds other mediums. She currently resides in South Florida. Her creative energy has evolved over the past few decades and in order to remain authentic in her work she resides by one rule and that is to always be true to yourself. She paints what she feels, not what she sees.The manifestation of this unique ability to communicate emotion to the recipient of art is the personification of the work of Ursula Schwartz.
Painting is at its most authentic core, the alchemical expression of a message through images and color. It has the ability to transform opinions, create new emotions and infuse unique understandings about ourselves and the people around us.
