    Karl Umlauf Karl Umlauf Presentation Transcript

    •  As a young artist, Karl Umlauf was motivated by several forms of subjectmatter. One was the structural geological forms of land. The other wasthe complexity of machinery and piping systems found in petroleumrefineries, as well as the spectacular environment of steel mills andsalvage yards. This imagery was and continues to be his subject matter.He modifies and reinvents these sources, infusing them with personalcreative expressions. ARTIST STATEMENT The multi-planographic sequences of surface imagery and color are used increating polarities, properties of tension, measured rhythms and surface energies,indicative of a visual form of physics. If the work appears to have an abstract yetunique personal identity and if it provides a distinct physical presence, then Ihave succeeded in establishing my visual signature.

    •  The energy in my work has always germinated from the drawingprocess. Through this creative activity a metamorphosis occurs,enabling me to explore surfaces, structures, and a synergy fromwhich new concepts develop. When the work forms a newdirection, I am increasingly aware of the qualities upon which theprevious imagery was constructed, providing motivation for thejourney ahead… The changes I have made in the direction and appearance of mywork throughout my career have evolved from my quest for amore unique and personal experience. Challenge is the object ofmy search, freedom the lifeblood, and resolution my ultimatereward – KARL UMLAUF.
