    Art Brokerage: Jonathan Borosky American Blue Chip Artist: B. 1942 - .Jonathan Borofsky is an American sculptor and printmaker who lives and works in Maine. Borofsky was born in Boston, Massachusetts. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts at Carnegie Mellon University in 1964, after which he continued his studies at France's Ecole de Fontainebleau and received his Master of Fine Arts from Yale University in 1966. In the 1960s, Borofsky's art sought to interconnect minimalism and pop art. On May 21, 2006, Mr. Borofsky received an honorary doctorate in Fine Arts from Carnegie Mellon, his alma mater. Jonathan Borofsky's most famous works, at least among the general public, are his Hammering Man sculptures. "Hammering Men" have been installed in various cities around the world. The largest Hammering Man is in Seoul, Korea and the second largest is in Frankfurt, Germany. Other Hammering Men are in Basel, Switzerland, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Seattle, Washington, D.C. and Lillestrøm, Norway. Jonathan Borofsky use of free association and dreams is the catalysts for his work. Borofsky, work spans over the past 30 years and has been marked by numerous stylistic shifts, although it remains primarily conceptual. It is as much about the process of the creation, as it is about the individual objects he makes. Perusing the myriad images that span the past ten years of Borofsky's production, we find certain recurring themes, the most persistent of which is "the fear of being chased." Commenting on Borofsky's use of free association and dreams as catalysts for his work, several critics have suggested a kinship between his art and that of the surrealists. Unlike the surrealists, however, who used dreams to probe the mysteries of the unconscious, Borofsky uses dreams to clarify the meaning of ordinary experiences. Listings wanted.
