Imagination Reflected by Curt Kiwak.
A lot of Kiwak’s drawings include images of things that reflect his childhood fears. Some symbols and subjects get repeated often: animals, water, monsters, prisoner of war camp images, and innocents in jeopardy. He says he is intrigued by how his imagination gets reflected on the page and how the work then takes on a life of its own.
Kiwak works with ball point pens, pastels mixed with different paint mediums, pencils, charcoal and paint on paper can be seen in a solo exhibition in the airport’s Link gallery through Nov 2.
Kiwak gets some of his inspiration from his lifelong career as a preschool teacher. He states, “As a preschool teacher I allow children to learn through experience. I want them to explore and answer questions and solve problems. They need to be active learners. My classroom setting encourages them to make choices about materials and activities. I believe that children at this age learn best by pursuing their own interests and goals and not through typical school-like art activities. Teaching through play and hands on experiences is the best practice at this age. I continue to help my young students know that art is not just limited to a finished product but a process. Finally as an artist I have been influenced by young children’s art. How they see the world and how they use their representational skills have always drifted into my artwork.
