Bronze Sculptures Work
With the encouragement of friend and sculptor, Lee McCartt, Darlene began to sculpt with clay. She has created sculptures of her Aleut/Alutiiq ancestors and has them cast in bronze. Drawing on her own experiences as an Alaskan Native and by studying clothing, facial adornments, and tattoos documented by explorers of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries she is able to create pieces that express more fully her connection to her ancestors. Her pieces, like well-told stories, reveal the hard life, joy, intelligence, and rich culture of her ancestors.
