An artist, an inventor, and a business man – any of these titles would aptly describe Morton Rachofsky. With a stint in the army as an officer, a couple of patents in his name, and head of several professional organizations in his career, Rachofsky is a man who has made the most of the multiple talents given to him. His venture into art which began over 50 years ago with sculptor Octavio Medellin at the Dallas Museum of Fine Art, led him to begin the Texas Sculpture Association of which he served as Founding President, Director.
His work is re-arrangeable geometric sculptures which from a mathematical formula and in true MADI tradition, he experiments with multiple combinations and variations. Predominantly working in stainless steel structures, the ordering and logic of the pieces reveal the artist’s analytical mind.
Morton Rachofsky was born and educated in Texas. He currently lives in Dallas.
