ABOUT ULRIKE


By education, Ulrike is a mathematician and an electrical engineer.   By vocation, she operates in the black-and-white, yes-no rigor of the aerospace field.

Her sculpture is most often representational - predominantly of the human form - but other life forces also appear prominently.  The challenge of creating movement in a traditionally immovable medium (stone) is compelling.
Ulrike’s work skillfully explores the aesthetic. What makes a form pleasing?  What shapes are pleasing, what surface undulations are pleasing?  What is it in a curve or in a singularity or in an edge that creates a feeling?  How is it that the feeling so created sensual or even seductive?


According to current medical wisdom, the inspiration for art and science emanate from opposite hemispheres of the brain.  It is when these hemispheres intersect, the juxtaposition of the hard, cold immobility of stone with the fluidity, heart and life-force of the subject that creates the intrigue.
