As a painter and photographer, Jack Balas is interested in recontextualizing images of men in a variety of emotional, political and stylistic scenarios -- contexts in which they function as everyman, but are more vulnerable than their surface perfection might suggest. His work is in the collections of the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others.
