Prolifically creative, Kenneth Jack seemed to produce art throughout his life, no matter his location. Here, he captures a well-known meeting point of Bendigo, a regional Victorian town. The Alexandra Fountains sits central to the mining town, surrounded by heritage buildings from the bygone gold-rush era. The use of bold colour, juxtaposed to the black and white, emphasises the natural opposed to the built. The dynamic movement of water as it flows through the feature is evoked through Jack’s sharp angled dashes and lines. A single tree from Rosalind Park sits at the edge of the image, reminding viewers that there is always more to discover in the small town. 

Jack is a renowned artist nationally and internationally, with works in collections such as the Royal Collection at Windsor, Victoria and Albert museum, National Gallery of Australia and the Australian War Memorial, as well as most state collections. Celebrated for his painterly ability, Jack was the only Australian born member of the Royal Watercolour Society in London.
