The Danish painter Ulrik Møller (born in 1962 in Vester Åby) lives in Berlin, but often returns to his native area of southern Funen in his landscapes. The sea, the rolling hills, the village pond and winding lanes are humble, tranquil motifs that do not scream out at the viewer. And yet, Ulrik Møller’s paintings quiver with atmosphere and presence. He portrays the world minutely, almost meticulously, in spite of the often blurred contours. The deserted landscapes create a unique sense of presence and abandonment at the same time, and we are struck by an inner quiet when we look at the pictures. As if the hectic rhythm of reality has come to a halt.
