'Crystalised Air' - oil on canvas
"Ursula's gift is beyond artistry. She uses skill and intuition, and is one of the rare artists to bring through the Muse of visual poetry into her works. Her portraiture is accurate, her use of colour astounding, and she gives expression to her figure drawing with few strokes and flowing one-line techniques. Her gift is genetic, passed through generations of well-renowned artists. I possess several of her works, one of which is portrait of my son. I look forward to seeing all her new endeavours.
Dwina Gibb (author and artist, widow of Robin Gibb and mother of Robin-John Gibb)
“I love the colours and vibrancy and inner strength of Ursula's paintings. The ones I have on my walls have brought a very special feeling and inspiration into the room. I find my imagination is really stimulated by the possibilities that are opened up by her unique style.”
Araminta Samways (collector)
"Ursula Stone's paintings are layered in mystery. She is such a master of using colour in it’s depths to build imaginative landscapes that allow the viewer to enter into a world of visual possibilities. The shapes arise out of the colour and this process is enhanced by the fact that she is also an accomplished draughtsman. Though nothing in her canvases are pre-drawn and thus ‘trapped’. It has been a wonderful journey to experience Ursula‘s growing artistic voyages into the power of colour, and it’s need to be healed in our mineralised culture."
Wendy Cook (Food writer and former wife of Satirist Peter Cook)
"The unusual and captivating quality of Ursula Stone's art is that the colour is worked in such a way as to give the observer the feeling of being inside an 'alternative reality'. You literally feel to be inside spaces that are created out of colour. It is quite magical."
Christopher Garvey (Director, Artemis School of Speech and Drama)
"Emotional,intellelectual,complex yet clearly expressed and a pleasure to contemplate and to study. These are my main reasons for owning artwork by local artist Ursula Stone. I have had the pleasure of experiencing her art therapy courses and tutored workshops and apart from being a talented artist she is also an excellent tutor. I look forward to augmenting my collection with further works by Ursula."
