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.

The poetically titled ‘Shades of Night Hovering’ is an original screenprint on paper. Against an crisp grey backdrop sit spiky pops of red. A blue rectangle cuts through the plane, adorned with more forms in yellow. This work is musical, a jazz composition to score gathering nightfall – what do you see?

Jacks enjoyed an illustrious career, entering all and exhibiting across national collections. For collectors of abstract art or spaces in need of uplift, Jacks’ ‘Shades of Night Hovering’ work is as collectable as it is elegant, intelligent, and joyful.
