by Rev. Marian Paskowicz
Exhibited at the Marian Library: January 9 - February 24, 1995
Pieces of straw and a razor blade take the place of paint and
brush in the hands of Marian Paskowicz, of Norristown,
Pennsylvania. "Many persons in Poland do straw painting," says
the artist, who came to this country in 1960, "but in the U.S. it
is rare only because artistic persons never have been exposed to
it and never have thought of straw as a real or true art medium."
Marian Paskowicz began doing straw art at the age of sixteen.
Marian Paskowicz's art form is unique, and the artist is not
eager to sell. Each of the hundreds of straw paintings is
copyrighted. Marian's ambition is not critical acclaim, fame or
wealth. He has an artist's dream, which is also the dream of a
man with a generous heart. His dream is someday to have his own
museum, where he can display his work for the joy of the
audience, and use the proceeds to help the homeless.
