Robert Jacks represents one of Australia’s most esteemed and distinctive abstract artists. From selling out his first solo exhibition in 1966, spending ten-years on a self-described ‘international internship’ in New York and Canada through to a major retrospective at the National Gallery of Victoria in 2014, Jacks’ spent a lifetime fine-tuning his visual language.

Exquisitely executed, Jacks’ ‘Harmonic Ratios’ hangs in perfect pictorial balance. Like notes in a jazz composition, crisp forms punctuate cobalt blue to create visual rhythm. A symbiosis between music and abstract art recurred throughout Jacks' career, jazz representing not only the sound of his studio but a beat in his oeuvre.

For collectors of the artist, abstract art or spaces in need of uplift, 'Harmonic Ratios' is wonderous find. Represented across public collections and in several monographs, Jacks work is as collectable as it is intelligent.
