Landscapes are one of the oldest traditions in art. They speak to our relationship with nature – captivated but slightly withheld – as well as the artistic challenge of capturing the changing of light and climate. Meditative, inspiring and refreshing, to gaze upon a landscape is to allow yourself a mental vacation.

The only Australian born member of the Royal Watercolour Society, Kenneth Jack is among Australia’s most significant landscape artists. In ‘Old Telegraph Station, Alice Springs, NT’, the artist has captured the serene environment of rural Australia. This former communications hub was one of the original sites of European settlement in Alice Springs. The white-washed stone buildings with tin roofs are well-known to the admirers of Australian architecture. Surrounded by bush and scrub, the telegraph station is a portrait of isolation experienced by those who venture to Central Australia.

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. For lovers of watercolours or quiet landscapes, ‘Old Telegraph Station, Alice Springs, NT’ is a delightful discovery.
