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 ‘Abandoned Port, Cossack, W.A.’, the artist has captured the serene environment of rural Australia. A ghost town in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, Cossack was once a popular location for pearling. Slowly, the town was abandoned but the bluestone buildings remain as a sign of what once was. In an encroaching storm, they are a comfort still to the birds seeking refuge.

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 emotive landscapes, ‘Abandoned Port, Cossack, W.A.’ is a delightful discovery.
