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.

He grew up learning to draw the garden with his father, a horticulturalist. In art school he meet Fred Williams, luminary painter of the Australian landscape, and would head into the bush with him to paint. While Jacks was never a traditional landscape artist, these formative experiences scatter throughout his oeuvre. In the original screenprint, 'Lake Eyre Garden', he puts his own spin on the convention. Like beats in a musical composition, spiky green and black shrubs pop around a red dot, perhaps the sun.

‘Lake Eyre Garden’ is for admirers of the artist, abstract art or spaces in need of an uplift. With an illustrious career and representation in all state collections, Jacks’ work is collectable, intelligent, and joyous.
