Jack Wolsky studied art at the State University College at Buffalo and was a professor of art at the State University College at Brockport for 35 years. Form is the subject of his paintings, and he cites many artists who inspire his non-representational style, including Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso, and Lyonel Feininger. In Axial Structure #5, layers of lacquer glazes create textural details on a scaffolding of symmetrically arranged forms.
