Dennis Kowal’s life as a sculptor spans over 5 decades. His works, while monumental and archetypical, demonstrate respect for human scale. They are classic and symbolic, sensual and intuitive. His sculptures manifest convergence of matter, both real and imaginary, science and technology, illustrating persistent life affirming creative energy. Additionally, Kowal has published 11 limited edition prints including a digital 7-color embroidered poster, and authored the technical book “Sculpture Casting”. Over 50 one-man exhibitions, hundreds of group shows and lectures.
