Ring of Fire
Garry Kaulitz is a Full-Time Full Professor and Head of the Engraving Department at the University of Alaska at Anchorage, USA.
His autobiographical work, deals with the subject of the enigmatic nature. By using and juxtaposing images of elements, landscapes and objects, he creates an imaginary world that accounts for the fictions and frictions of the mind.
During his residence in ´ace he “built” (through multiple printed and collage layers) twelve large monotypes that make up the exhibition Rings of Fire, in which he incorporated traditional and innovative techniques of monotype, chine collé and prints digital as well as gold and copper laminated.
In 2010 Garry Kaulitz was the co-director of the Self-portraits Project, 7th Session in Alaska as well as the link with the Out North Gallery to carry out the International Traveling Exhibition of the same project in 2012, this relationship between the artist and `ace has been consolidated through of the years and collaborative work hoping that new projects will summon us in the future.

Ring of Fire
Observations on The Sturgis Bicycle Rally and The Man on Fire Project.
I plunged into a rabbit cave made of burned rubber, mechanical beauties, leather topless and spilled beers just to spin around and set off in a desert of “alter egos” ridden on fantasy creatures in topless women’s parades, breathing dust and spitting fire.
Contradictions of meat and mechanics, speed and relaxed behavior, filtered in the traditions of fire, dust and alcohol. Interpreting the Ying and Yang of self-indulgence.
