Ring of Fire

14.11.08 05.12.08

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.

ARTIST’S TESTIMONY

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.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
