Novina, Ulla

Ancient Vessel

Ulla Novina was born and educated in Sweden and studied sculpture in the studio of Minoru Niizuma. In addition to creating art, she also lectures on art and sculpture. She is a former board member of the Art Center of Northern New Jersey, and the president of the Art Center Sculptor Affiliates.

Novina is represented by Broadfoot & Broadfoot Gallery of Fine Art in Boonton, NJ and the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Her sculptures are in many private collections in both the USA and Sweden.

Novina writes: “My sculptures are expressions of my love of and my identification with the stone.
I explore the stone‚Äôs natural state and strive to achieve an aesthetic balance between the stone itself and my carved form – a bold union. For me, the non-representational expressive form is truest to this idea.”

Ancient Vessel is installed inside Leonia’s Borough Hall.
