Jack Bush’s artistic transition from representation to abstraction was both gradual and complex. Throughout the 1930s and early 1940s, Bush was a landscape and figure artist with a fine sense of line, a part of the generation of Ontario painters who came after the Group of Seven. As his approach became more dramatic and stylized, throughout the late 1940s and very early 1950s he produced a series of works, sometimes religious in tone, often presenting anonymous figures struggling against difficulty, doubt, and anxiety, sometimes even other people, as in the case of Struggle. Work from this transitional period is often deeply psychological and symbolic in tone, and is key to a fuller understanding the joyfulness and freedom of Bush’s colour field paintings that followed.
This work was included in the Art Gallery of Algoma’s exhibition Jack Bush – Hymn to the Sun, a celebration of Bush’s pre-abstract work that toured Canada in the late 1990s.
This work will be included in Sarah Stanners’s forthcoming Jack Bush Paintings: A Catalogue Raisonné.
