Glama-Rama Salon Oakland is excited to welcome painter William “Cricket” Ulrich’s new show, “EVOLUTION – Making Sense of a Drip”. Join us for the opening reception on Saturday, May 2nd, 6-9pm. Refreshments and light snacks will be provided. This is a free event.
From the artist:
“The story of a drip that raged out of control until it became refined. Initially I had painted over a landscape with a Baroque scroll and drips. The paintings started to transform into something else, becoming more abstract. A black outline grows up and takes over becoming a black shape. A turquoise drip that dominates other paintings becomes one drip of significance.
I have a background in decorative painting and an affinity for historic patterns. I wanted to make these baroque scrolls modern and interesting. The process has been organic and they started moving toward something. I don’t think of myself as an abstract painter and usually create figurative work. I let the materials speak to me and tell me where they want to go.”
William “Cricket” Ulrich has a studio with Firehouse Art Co. Gilman Studios in Berkeley at 9th and Gilman. There is an open studio there First Fridays 5-8pm and Third Sundays 11am-4pm. He will also be participating in ProArts East Bay Open Studios in June.
