Martha Glowacki

Why is this art and not a natural history or science exhibit?
Glowacki is an artist, not a scientist or historian, although she draws on those disciplines for inspiration and content; however, she puts her findings "through a different filter." She is not as interested as a scientist or historian in depicting "reality" but in communicating how she sees the world. She enjoys creating assemblages of objects that appear real and rescued from past usage; however, she constructs them out of found and invented objects that she transforms through her artistry.
