Tabak’s early work reflects his bond to nature through his landscape paintings. Social commentary followed with an emphasis on environmental issues for nearly two decades. These works were the subject of numerous exhibitions at the Dorsky Galleries in NYC(80’s) and museums. The Wichita Art Museum sponsored a traveling exhibition titled “The Radwaste and Stonehenge Books” a series of sculptural ‘books’ in a collaboration with artist Nava Atlas. The series then traveled to several other museums sponsored by the Art Gallery at SUNY New Paltz (now the Dorsky Museum).
Tabak began to explore sculpture as a medium in 2001 utilizing found natural materials. These became the basis for his current experiments often describes as ‘three dimensional drawings’. These are compositions utilizing wood, stone, glass, discarded broken materials, as well as metallic objects.
More recently, Tabak began to incorporate collaborative performance projects working with dancers and musicians. These are interpretive creations utilizing digitized and color edited images projected as part of the performances. One of these was created in Hanoi, Vietnam in 2016 and most recently, at the WAAM (Woodstock museum), NY, 2018.
