A Journey Within
An exhibition of the early art of Concordia Klar (1938–2004) and Peeter Ulas (1934–2008)
Discover Surrealism in Estonian art from the 1960s to the 1980s in the drawings and paintings of Concordia Klar and Peeter Ulas.
The early drawings of the printmaker couple Concordia Klar and Peeter Ulas were never made into engravings, but offer interesting insight into the works of both artists. In fact, these drawings were before their time, anticipating growing interest in Surrealism in Estonian art.
A selection of both artists’ drawings and prints in the vernis mou technique highlight Surrealism in Estonian art from the 1960s to the 1980s. Vernis mou is a type of varnish used in etching.
Ulas graduated from the State Art Institute in Tallinn in 1959. Ulas’s work-intensive engravings developed from his drawings showing untamed fantasy and daring spatial perception. Concordia Klar graduated from the the State Art Institute in Tallinn in 1963.Klar focused on drawing. What makes her work particularly interesting is the way she tied cultural history, architecture, and nature together. The lithe female figure playing music became a characteristic image of her work.
A Journey Within will be open in the Cabinet of Prints and Drawings until the end of the year. For those interested in learning the vernis mou technique, courses will take place at the Kumu Graphic Arts Workshop. Courses will introduce the technique and works from the collection will be studied. The courses will be supervised by Maria-Kristiina Ulas.
