Ulla Wiggen

B. 1942, Stockholm, Sweden.

Ulla Wiggen can indeed be said to be part of a greater hyper realistic tradition. She began her career in the 60s, painting motifs based on electrical components and the inside of mechanics, specifically printed circuit boards. On wood panel her paintings show us the inner mysteries of what man created in mechanics. Wiggen is also a psychotherapist, which can be noted in her works from -69 to this day. She therefore also explores the inside of the human body and its conditions, much like educational posters from medicine. Her later works include motifs of irises and what can be interpreted as the inside of brains and organs.
