Arctic Charade

This series of works, made from summer 2019 and 2020, takes the viewer to a beautiful, cheerful world of clarity, optimism, human daring and entrepreneurial spirit. We see fresh, young acrobats, using nature as a backdrop for their excellence in quality or appearance. Preta Wolzak turns them into heroes, loaded with beauty and glamour, executed in rich materials. But there is also a dark side to her story. Below the surface, Preta Wolzak depicts her outrage at the way people treat the globe. Tourism and the extraction of raw materials form dark clouds over the still largely untouched areas, which already seem to be shaken by the consequences of climate change. The acrobate stand for the foolish behaviour of mankind, ruining its environment. Man turns the world into one big amusement park, which now even threatens to spread out to the last untouched areas of our planet: the North and South Pole.

 

People with the yellow ear

My latest series: People With The Yellow Ear from the isle of ChuckacaBa. The most breathtaking place on earth, ChuckacaBa is situated at Micronesia. Each portrait is composed out of multiple ethnicities. “There is only one race and that is The Human Race.” ~Rosa Parks. My latest sculptures are the guards from ChuckacaBa. There are no religions on this island and it is not a monarchy. This series started in March 2020, Corona( Covid ) Outbreak Quarantine time……. The works are all hand embroidered and leather.
