Over the course of a 50-year career spent in Europe and the United States, Jack Zajac has worked in a variety of sculptural idioms, ranging from Surrealism to biomorphism and pure abstraction. In polished stone and bronze, he has created objects that resemble animal skulls, abstract birds, flowing water, clouds, and contorted animals. Through meditative exploration of the ability of form to carry meaning, Zajac touches on religious themes of ablution, rebirth, and sacrifice. His best-known work is a series of pinioned sacrificial animals impaled by stake, a theme he has returned to repeatedly over the course of his career.
