Raymond Uhlir's cartoon worlds are portrayed in oil enamel, giving off a Yellow Submarine type of vibe. Uhlir's recent narrative seems a mix of folklore and rock'n'roll, when a mysterious oracle is part of barren, windy landscape. Music is a sure theme, along with a range of generations that is surviving in this Nordic place. And for added interest, the series of new work includes references to siblings who have been separated.
Artist: Raymond Uhlir
The exhibition of work by Raymond Uhlir runs from July 8 through August 21, 2010 at the d berman gallery in Austin, Texas.
