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.

In just black and white, ‘Silent Mirror’ makes an impact. The silhouette of a mirror, composed of stripes, occupies the centre of the image. Perhaps the enchanted mirror from Snow White has been gagged, transformed into a form of mid-century elegance. Left open to interpretation, one of the joys of Jacks’ work is how he sets up visual puzzles for the eye to savour.

‘Silent Mirror’ is for admirers of the artist, abstract art or rooms in need of an uplift. With an illustrious career and representation in all state collections, Jacks’ work is as collectable as it is beautiful.
