2008 - 2014: FORCE +

FORCE is a narrative sequence which spans 14 large scale paintings.
Together they form an epic allegory about creation:
It begins with a volcanic eruption - the lava is represented by gazing red and yellow colors. These rip and tear through layers of brown paint to eventually burst out and shoot up toward the bright blue skies.
When seen from afar, one can make out the contour of the mountain terrain initially containing the lava to resemble Ullman's head in profile. Could this entire sequence be happening inside his head? The eruption connects inside and out - it digs a tunnel which forms a direct connection between his brain and mouth.

As the liquid red and yellow lava hits the blue skies, it gradually cools and solidifies. In the process multiple layers, represented by multiple shades of brown (a mix of red, yellow and blue) form. The deeper the layer, the deeper the shade of brown is.

The raw volcanic substance is then absorbed into a mechanical chain of actions executed by industrial vehicles - sucking, scrapping, clearing, mixing, molding, tearing, spilling… These vehicles are represented by additions of clear-cut, precise geometric shapes. They gradually process the raw material until eventually nothing is left.

Is creation bound to end in absence?
