By the abundance of art that Ulla Anobile creates, she must be working every nanosecond of the day.
Whether it be devils in felt, masks from pieces of driftwood, her interpretation of The Magi (“Three Shamans Follow a Star”), or a paper mache family of owls—with two sleepy-looking home-schooled young’uns—perched on a branch, her work is engaging, fanciful, emotional, and contains such extensive painted and stitched detail that you find yourself leaning closer, looking harder, and marvelling.
Her exhibit “Birds, Birds, Birds” (new works in paper mache and fiber), will open this Saturday at Sandra Mastroianni’s Cactus Gallery. The original space on Eagle Rock Boulevard has had to close its doors, but Sandra is currently using a private space to continue to promote her vast field of artists who work in traditional art forms, folk art, and outsider art.
