Whimsical and precise, Decker presents Geometric Poetry. The golden wire traverses the three dimensional space, slowing rotating outwards in an angular fashion. Geometric Poetry is no exception to Decker’s sensitivity with the material and its boundaries that makes contemporary art and sculptural design so exciting. Incorporating something so emotionally involved, such as poetry in a paradoxical narrative with mathematics, evokes this delicate humane quality through the golden wires.
The wearable sculptures by the internationally acclaimed architectural artist Ute Decker are a meditation on the richness of simplicity. She sculpts space, movement, volume and a subtle texture into a carefully composed interplay of light and shadow with a richly evocative sense of space and story. This essential purity is typical of her work in its minimalism and attention to detail.
