Ulla Djelweh is a Toronto-based interdisciplinary artist and a graduate of the Ontario College of Art. She has consistently exhibited and sold her work since 1985. In recent years digital photography has become her medium of choice. A passion for travel and foreign cultures and her keen interest in landscapes, gardens and architecture often plant the seed for a visual story; a natural or man-made environment supplies her with an abundance of new subjects. Strange colours, shapes and lines—often created by an ever-changing light and its reflections—might become the trigger for a fresh idea. Current social and political issues are addressed at times. For Contact 2017, she documented Relics of the Industrial Age, their current use and timeless beauty. In 2018 her focus was on Iceland and its dramatic landscapes.
