DISSOLVING BODIES: Beautifully executed paintings of bodies and faces start to break apart as if dissolving into the air, or on to the surface of the painting itself. There’s a beautiful and surreal dream-like quality to Henrik Aa Uldalen’s figurative paintings. Another series has a darker element, where he has taken a blowtorch to some other works so the canvas has literally melted away. I’ve been a fan of his work for some years and this is his strongest showing yet.
