"The figurative or 'recognisable' elements in this series are partly based on the decade-old photographic documentation of Vladimir Umanetz’s and Marcin Lodyga’s studio work. In 2010, during their stay in Cairo, both artists were developing the idea of an obscure post-artistic phenomenon known as yellowism, which later triggered their gradual resignation from art. They've tested various ideas and as a result, produced numerous flat and three-dimensional sketches and notes. I’ve remixed chosen fragments of Umanetz’s and Lodyga’s research outcomes on canvas and therefore, describe these paintings as yellowism studies. It seems to me that there is an increasing tendency to call all art political, which I rather question. My intention was to capture that specific time period, when such questioning occurs. So it is also correct to refer to a sequence of those murals as a time-within-time works." — Rodion Ulrich, London, 15 September 2020
