A FRAGILE WHISPER - INGRID UYS

With Ingrid's childhood characterized by many moves to a host of small towns, the concept of movement, migration, flight and impermanence are central themes represented in her work.

In "A Fragile Whisper", Ingrid's new collection of 24 oils on canvas and paper expands on this narrative; her fascination with hummingbirds as subject matter and their ability to hover, metaphorically brings focus to the concept of fleeting time.

The illusion of moments frozen in time, alluding to the fragile nature of seconds and minutes, is depicted by Ingrid in her unique combination of larger square and finely detailed brushstrokes.

In this new series of paintings, there is equal focus on plant matter: blossoms, twigs, and branches. The contrast of focused vs blurred images initiates a dialogue between notions of permanence and impermanence, giving further depth to the theme of migration/movement - and Ingrid's eternal quest to capture a sliver of permanence, rendering an everlasting glimpse of nature on canvas.
