Behind the gentle nature and soft-spoken demeanor of Theresa Hultberg lurks something powerful. She makes this clear in her use of movement and imagery in her work. Mists taking hold of landscapes as if the land itself was in the grasp of an other-worldly specter. Land and sky alike reverberating with an energy that seems to be waiting for just the right moment to release their chorus in a harmonious shout. Mountains violently exploding and yet every piece being held levitating in place in a precious moment of invisible embrace. Her work is strong, beautiful, and meaningful. We are excited that Theresa is bringing her breath of fresh air to this series with her linocuts and paintings.
July through August of 2022, Theresa Hultberg will be exhibiting as the Lively Beerworks Taproom Artist. Artist reception will be held at Lively Beerworks Taproom Friday, July 15 from 7 to 9 p.m.
Theresa Hultberg is an artist from Oklahoma City who received a BFA in Art from the University of Oklahoma in 2014 working primarily in painting and printmaking. Theresa has shown work in exhibitions across Oklahoma City, Norman, and Tulsa and has displayed printmaking in exchanges shown internationally in Mexico, South America, and New Zealand.
Theresa is also Program Manager of the Paseo Arts District in Oklahoma City and serves on leadership for the local art collective, Art Group OKC which actively supports emerging artists through studio visits, networking, and event organization.
In my work, feelings of connection, solitude, and control drive an exploration of the unknown. Through painting and printmaking, atmospheric forms and mark-making play together to create abstracted landscapes and mystic compositions. Each piece is inspired by the rhythm of the landscape and an instinctual sense of unseen forces, natural or spiritual. The sensation of wind is often brought into each piece as it is uncontrollable and invisible; only seen when it affects something else.
