Over the past three decades, sculptor PAT STRAKOWSKI has produced a body of totally original work that is unique when measured against almost any artistic or cultural standard. Her sculptures – created from papier-maché adorned by found objects as varied as ancient Japanese coins, Mexican ceremonial trinkets and wasps’ nests from the local neighbourhood – have few parallels in any artistic tradition.
By placing Strakowski’s work in the perspective of myth in the contemporary world, Andrew Oko has developed insights that would not be possible simply by observing the sculptures by themselves, without reference points. Drawing on the ideas of thinkers as diverse as Roland Barthes, Jacques Derrida and Aldona Jonaitis, Oko has created a framework that greatly enhances even a casual appreciation of the art underlying the art of Pat Strakowski.
Here is a sampling of the photographs of the art of Pat Strakowski from Moon Nibbler.
