EDMONON.- The Art Gallery of Alberta opened a new exhibition featuring the work of lauded Canadian artist Jack Bush. The exhibition, Jack Bush, is a unique opportunity to view a full picture of the artist’s five decades of artistic achievement and a fascinating look at how his personal life influenced his work. Jack Bush at the AGA is adapted for the Alberta audience from the exhibition of the same name, which opened at the National Gallery of Canada in November 2014.

This exhibition features over 50 works from the 1930s to the 1970s, showing Jack Bush’s transition from commercial illustrator to large scale abstract painter. Sections of the artist’s unpublished diaries are included, highlighting the story of his life on the vanguard of 20th century abstraction. Bush’ colourful abstract paintings are aimed at provoking visceral effects for the viewer, rather than making specific references to the world of appearances.

The exhibition was curated by Marc Mayer, Director and CEO of the National Gallery of Canada, and Dr. Sarah Stanners, Director, Curatorial & Collections of the McMichael Canadian Art Collection and author of the forthcoming Jack Bush catalogue raisonné. "The Jack Bush exhibition celebrates this great Canadian painter and provides a complete rereading of his unique story," says co-curator Marc Mayer. "Bush is a really satisfying artist; you don't come away saddened or confused, but cheered up."
