About Marek Jerzy Nowakowski

I have been working with sculpture for 35 years, it always enjoy me. I understand sculpture on a classic way, something between Michaelo Angelo and Henry Moor. My favorite material is bronze because of its durability and immutability. With light hand I can give guarantees for 2000 years. Because of sculptors we know how people look like in Antiquity. There is some true in it that sculptors give immortality.
Maybe for modern people it does not matter anymore, but it is worth having the awareness that a sculpture passing from generation to generation, in the context of a family, builds awareness of continuity and tradition.
I work with lost wax technology and I cast in bronze on my own.
