WAK welcomes a new member, Marlene Czajkowski! Her sculptures are beautiful and amazing!
Here's an excerpt from her bio: "My obsession—my subject--has always been tribal: Native American, African, and now, of course, Indigenous Hawaiian. There is an authenticity, a purity of
being—something raw, natural. I am utterly passionate about the sacred quality of a pose. My art is an act of discovery—a necessary surrender to outcome. I search for the real—my people have to be in their element. A pretty face? I couldn’t care less."
"There is in my relationship to my work this: That single moment you want to embrace—like the mother and child—and then it is (they are) gone. I snap my fingers--the moment is gone. My sculpture represents those moments we cannot hold onto. To me, that is what is most sacred—the fleeting connection of souls."
It is truly a great honor to have Marlene as a member of WAK!
Aloha and Mahalo,
