  • Zae Ulrich

    American Artist...

    San Francisco, CA

Zae 1968 US Interested in paint as a marker of timelessness and fragility, Zae Ulrich frames moments of decay, emotion and illusion through his acrylic on canvas works. His skillfully rendered creations feature terrestrial landscapes strewn with complex forms, craggy lines and floating patches of pigment that intrigue the eye. Slivers of vague imagery emerge out of translucent color washes and frosty abstraction in variegated shades of grey, aquamarine, brown, beige and mother of pearl. Interested in the ‘sense of elation and release’ inherent in the creative process, Ulrich’s works are subtly provocative and charged with invigorating elements of creative energy. When considered as a totality, his oeuvre evokes a multi-sensory tunnel vision that absorbs the viewer in its compelling force, demanding both attention and appreciation. Born in California, American painter Zae Ulrich currently lives and works outside San Francisco, CA. His work has been endorsed by Lanier Graham, an art historian and former curator of a number of prestigious institutions including MoMA and the Norton Simon Museum. Ulrich’s art is included in collections in France, Italy, Canada and throughout the United States.
