Jack Brusca, American (1939 - 1993)<br/><br/> Jack Brusca's ability to interpret the natural wonder of ordinary things and ideas is the major reason he is so highly regarded in today's contemporary art world. As an illusionist who manipulates letters, numbers and flowers among things, Brusca's keen sense of spacial dimension and color blend to give his work a theatrical-type light. As John Canady of The New York Times wrote:"... (Brusca's) geometrical forms are painted with adegree of illusionism that makes a metal band seem to arch away from the wall, turning the painting into sculpture".<br/><br/>Born in New York in 1939, Brusca studied at the University of New Hampshire and The School of Visual Arts, New York. His first one-man show was held at Galeria Bonino in New York in 1969. Since then his works have been displayed throughout the United States and South America. He has participated in numerous exhibitions including Expo '67, Montreal; Paintings and Sculptures Today, Indianapolis Museum of Art and Highlights of the Season at the Larry Aldrich Museum in Ridgefield, Conn.<br/><br/>Mr.
