Jack Zajac

Landau-Alan Gallery

Jack Zajac is yet another victim of High Polish. In his case this predilection is a thousand-fold more delightful than the anguish of the School of Rico Lebrun to which Zajac had earlier adhered. Zajac’s new columns are bronze and marble cobra-like sheaths related to the form of running tap water. In a unique piece the liquid theme is transposed into that of a small crested wave, smoothly polished out of marble. All these sheens and liquefactions are indeed quite handsome, if terribly facile.
