Construction 45 is not my first sculpture that uses pencil marks other than those made to help me make cuts. But it is the first sculpture where the pencil marks (drawing) are incorporated into and are integral part of the composition. I've had the idea of drawing on basswood some... Continue reading

This wall sculpture is a little bit like Construction 6, Icarus and like Construction 9. It is an abstract figure. Sort of. It is more like an abstraction that is inspired by the human figure but doesn't necessarily represent the human figure. Although you can spot certain elements in the... Continue reading

Construction 39, Lovers Embracing, Maciek Jozefowicz, 2014, wood and twine. Ahhh, that stupid dowel in the center! There are times where showing all the structural elements that make up a sculpture is desirable. This is not the time. The dowel in this piece should have been shorter and it should...

Construction 33, Daedalus First Prototype, Maciek Jozefowicz, 2014, wood and twine. Before Daedalus made the wings of wax and feathers that enabled him and his son to escape from the prison tower on Crete, he must have brainstormed other ways of making a flying contraption for a human. Who knows... Continue reading

Construction 43, Pictur-esque, Maciek Jozefowicz, 2014, wood and twine. Construction 43 is a sculpture that wants to be a painting. I've been meaning to do a wall sculpture that has the rectangular silhouette of a painting for some time now. This is the closest I've come yet. It is almost... Continue reading

Sketches of Nudes, Maciek Jozefowicz, 2014, marker. Michelangelo and Rubens are my favorite draftsmen of the human figure. They are the two greatest artists of the human figure. They are my models and they represent the standard that I want to reach. I've got a lot of work to do... Continue reading

Drawings, Maciek Jozefowicz, 2014, marker. Here is another page full of sketches of nudes. Learning to draw the human body is hard. Drawing the human body well is hard. But drawing the human body well is the foundation of all great art, whether "realistic" art or "abstract" art. So drawing... Continue reading

Sketches, Maciek Jozefowicz, 2014, marker. It has been a while since I've done some "real" drawing. I have wasted the last few years doing a lot of cartoon-like illustrations for my various children stories and digital art for my puzzle books. But now it is time to get back to... Continue reading

Italian Sonnet, Maciek Jozefowicz, 2008, rocks, dowel and twine. Art is justified, as man is justified, by the faculty of forming ideas… - Kenneth Clark Artistic imagination can be more nearly described as the finding of new form for old content, or--if the handy dichotomy of form and content is...

Family, Maciek Jozefowicz, 2013, wood This sculpture is a new way of expressing an old, universal theme. That is what most artists desire to do and what very few of them accomplish. It can be a great burden for a contemporary artist to have over two thousand years (really, more... Continue reading

Lovers, Maciek Jozefowicz, 2013, wood A new way of expressing an old, universal theme. What more do I need to say about this sculpture other than that and that it is available at www.SaatchiArt.com/Konokopia ? I can add that while this piece is small, I am more than willing to... Continue reading

Construction 37, Worried Warrior, Maciek Jozefowicz, 2014, wood and twine. There is some resemblance to traditional African art in this sculpture but the technique is completely different. It is a construction and not a carving. But the sculpture does incorporate some simple shaping of pieces by "shaving". I will continue... Continue reading

Construction 41, Musical Composition, Maciek Jozefowicz, 2014, wood and twine. Construction 41 is the third sculpture in the Growing group. The group is called that because each sculpture is created linearly (not in a straight line, of course). It that aspect, the Growing sculptures resemble a musical composition. What makes...

Construction 40, Lovers Aged, 2014, sculpture, Maciek Jozefowicz The aged lovers is not a popular subject in art. Maybe because love does not usually last long enough or maybe because love is almost always associated with beauty and beauty is almost always associated with youth. Nobody likes to look at...

Construction 36, Reclining Nude, sculpture, 2014, Maciek Jozefowicz Construction 36 represents some new steps for my sculpture. It is a freestanding figure. It incorporates carving. Actually, I think of it as shaving since that is what I am doing. I am shaping some of the elements by shaving them. It... Continue reading

Construction 39, Icarus Fallen, 2014, Maciek Jozefowicz I am beginning to expand the Construction Series by creating freestanding sculptures in addition to the wall sculptures. Construction 38, Icarus Fallen is my latest freestanding sculpture. It was created to complement Construction 6, Icarus. That piece is a wall sculpture. Both artworks... Continue reading

Sonnet 55, Maciek Jozefowicz, 2009, ink on paper. Sonnet 55 is one of my favorite drawings in the Sonnet Series. It is based on the English form of the sonnet and it expresses the elements of the form with visual drama. The three quatrains progressively build into a climactic end... Continue reading

Sonnet 53, Maciek Jozefowicz, 2009, ink on paper Sonnet 53 is a liberal interpretation of the Italian sonnet form. You can easily identify the bipartite structure of the form by the volta that separates the octave and the sestet. But that is as far as the similarities go. And that... Continue reading

Seven motifs ready and waiting for the development of the Evolution group of sculptures. I am out of basswood right now, so I've been creating stuff from leftovers. I've made seven motifs that will be developed into sculptures in the Evolution group. These seven motifs range from simple, one piece... Continue reading
