ULRIC STEINER - CONTEMPORARY SCULPTURE
Ulric STEINER is an inspired designer craftsperson. Born
into a family of artisans he escaped to wider horizons by building an
ocean‑going yacht in landlocked Switzerland and sailing it solo
through French rivers to the Mediterranean; then the West Indies and
the Marquesas, to Australia. Asian sculpture particularly that of Japan is an important influence on his work as he often travels in this region.
Pragmatic, imaginative and highly skilled, Ulric works in a wide
range of materials to create sculptures both civic and domestic
His kinetic and contemporary pieces, as well as maritime assemblages
grace many corporate spaces and private homes. He exhibits in various
Sydney and Melbourne galleries including SOHO Galleries, Graphis
Gallery, Art House Gallery, Porter's Gallery and St Alban's Gallery.
His public commissions can he seen in many diverse environments.
