Ulla Fries says that her pictures often come to her in dreams, ready, just to be fixed to the plate, using the very precise and time-consuming technique of copper engraving. For the sake of the clean line and precision, Ulla Fries has – above all – chosen this way of expression throughout her almost fifty-year career. The motifs are often taken from nature; lizards, bats, and dried leaves, but also fantasy creations from the artist's own dreams. Surfaces and structures are closely examined with the curiosity of a child, precisely depicted with the rich, deep black of the engraving.
Ulla Fries has a long and successful career behind her. She has been president of the Royal Academy of Arts and her work can be found in all the most important Swedish art collections.
