Jack Bush was born in Toronto in 1909 and died there in 1977. He studied in Montreal and in Toronto, at the Ontario College of Art, before becoming a commercial artist.
While the artist’s style is unique, his use of hard-edged abstraction and brilliant colourization, evident in this acrylic polymer on canvas, reflects the influence of Picasso, Matisse, Borduas and of the American art critic Clement Greenberg.
Bush was a member of Painters Eleven, the Ontario Society of Artists (Vice-Pres., 1943), the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, the Canadian Group of Painters and the Art Director’s Club of Toronto. He was one of two Canadian Painters represented in the Biennial at Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1967.
