Jack has been creating art on and off for more than 30 years. With a doctoral degree as a scientist, Jack is a perennial art student, learning from the masters and applying his math and geometry background into his art.
While Jack is a computer scientist, his art is done by hand, without computers, and with hand tools whenever possible. This is a way to find an expression in Art that fulfills his vision.
Jack initial influences were his relatives, part of a family of cabinetmakers who worked mostly with hand tools, growing up in an environment in which manual work conveyed a sense of pride. Jack has background in woodworking, welding and solid-state electronics. He’s constantly experimenting with materials and hand tools, formulating his own clay recipes, and creating his own modeling tools.
He created his first figurative clay models while in primary school, and continued developing his modeling abilities for many years, learning how to made molds and casts, and carving wood and stone. In recent years, Jack has used his carving abilities to create block prints beside his sculptures.
His sculptures have transitioned into abstraction with semi abstract figurative pieces as well as biomorphic abstraction. Constantly revisiting human and animal anatomy references, he strives for fundamental anatomical proportions even with some of the most abstract pieces.
After more than two decades of a successful career in the sciences, Jack has decided to expand his artistic endeavors, going beyond occasional commissions and private sells, in an effort to bring his art to a wider audience.
