Intro
Ulo Florack is an artists of many talents and almost impossible to classify. The question of whether he is a painter or a jeweler remains unanswered, both media nurture each other. His jewellery is sculptural and the application of colour painterly.

Artist list

Ulo Florack
Mysterious and fantastical figures and creatures, magical inscriptions feature in Ulo Florack’s jewellery and objects. Ulo creates his personal images of reality, filtered through his soul. He uses symbols and metaphors, often intermingled with an element of wit or certain critique.
Florack is fascinated by the malleability of various metals and alloys. It could be said that he thinks “in metal” and the range which he uses – gold, platinum, silver, copper, iron and chrome-cobalt-alloys – is his playground. Like an alchemist he has developed his own recipes for various alloys.
Colour plays a major role in his compositions. The application of enamel gives him great pleasure and enjoyment, a feel of artistic freedom Florack, the painter, comes to the fore. But Florack is primarily a maker of jeweled objects. Howewer, jewellery is central to his work and within this finger rings dominate.
Ulo Florack is an artists of many talents and almost impossible to classify. The question of whether he is a painter or a jeweler remains unanswered, both media nurture each other. His jewellery is sculptural and the application of colour painterly.
His style is unmistakable.
