Una is an artist and illustrator and uses animation, collage, painting and drawing in her work. She studied painting, drawing and print making at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam and The School of Visual Arts, New York and animation at the University of the West of England, Bristol.
‘I love the madness of collage. A medium, in the manner I use it, that allows me to juxtapose recognizable found images and transformed cutouts in pictorial narratives that invite the viewer to apply their own stories. Narratives at once oddly recognizable, yet uncomfortably odd; narratives often downright obscene, whilst pushing the chuckle-button; narratives that always aim to open the chute direct to the subconscious, that provoke an intuitive, not literal, sense, of what’s going on. That is my own goal in their making and what I hope the viewer will respond to in the viewing.’
