Face It

Jack Bordnick’s sculptures incorporate surrealistic, mythological and magical imagery—often with whimsical overtones—aimed at provoking our experiences and self-reflections. Aiming to unbalance our rational minds, the predominant imagery deals mostly with facial expressions of both living and “non-living” beings, and things that speak to us in their own languages. They are textural, metallic and mixed media assemblages that have been assembled, disassembled and reassembled, becoming abstractions unto themselves. Bordnick was an Industrial design graduate of Pratt Institute in New York. And has been a design director for numerous company, corporate and government projects. They have included a children’s museum, for the city of New York, and the Board of Education, for which he was involved in all aspects of marketing and design.
