Full Description

The representation of mysterious and fantastical figures, magical inscriptions and mythical beings that are half man and half beast are characteristic of the jewellery works and art objects created by Ulo Florack. With artistic mastery and an exuberant imagination, he tells stories using gold, silver, platinum and enamel. Ulo Florack is a multi-talented artist. It is almost impossible to categorise him. The question of whether he is more a painter or a jewellery artist cannot be answered definitively: both aspects cross-pollinate each other. His jewellery objects incorporate sculptural elements, whilst the choice and application of colours reveal the artist. His style is very distinctive and his objects use surprising ideological and intelligent imagery, which consciously hovers in the grey area between fantasy and reality. Text in English & German. Contents: Beatriz Chadour-Sampson: Between Fantasy and Reality; Just Work (catalogue of works); Just information (objects information); Biography, Solo exhibitions, Group exhibitions; Collections; Acknowledgements.
