Coming Up at the 10th Street Gallery:
John Kowalczyk describes his art as “shrine-like, shiny, symmetrical, and seductive figuration’s that become maps of my mind combining myth, math, and magic.” He was drawn to complete murals in response to The Outgoing Tide because of what the play reveals about the mind. His work is comprised of mixed media paintings and larger-than-life installations that incorporate vintage fabrics, thrift store treasures, gift-wrap, shelf liner, string, ribbon, re-purposed drawings, glitter, and gold. Highly detailed and entrancing, his paintings become more than the sum of their parts, exhibiting a spiritual nature.
About the Artist:
Born in Chicago, Kowalczyk received his BFA in painting from Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design in 2010 and began a three-year residency with RedLine Milwaukee soon after, where he curated gallery shows and taught workshops. He currently is the Artist in Residence Program Director for Artists Working in Education, where he facilitates and oversees large-scale community and public art projects throughout Milwaukee. Kowalczyk’s work has been exhibited at the Sienna Art Institute in Italy, the Charles Allis Art Museum, the Harley Davidson Museum, the Cedarburg Cultural Center, and the Museum of Wisconsin art, along with other galleries across the U.S. http://www.johnkowalczykart.com
Kowalczyk’s work will be displayed in the 10th Street Gallery during the run of The Outgoing Tide (February 23 – March 18, 2018).
View the work of Kowalczyk at the opening celebration on Sunday, February 25 from 4:00 – 6:00pm.
