Like Red Palms (Landscape With Turquoise Sea and Red Palms), lot 8 in this sale, Untitled is from a group of lyrical abstractions that exploded from Jack Shadbolt’s sensual experiences during a year’s leave of absence spent in Paris and the south of France. Rich with electric, deep pastels, this gorgeous painting is rife with natural forms – abstracted leafy branches, fruits and seed pods – that float in a luscious rippled sea of greens. After occupying himself with the dark human drama of the preceding war in the 1940s and the ensuing post-war insecurities, Shadbolt’s Mediterranean sojourn liberated him. Once again, he plunged into one of his great recurring themes – the cycles of nature. However, this time, his palette was rich, tropical and full of light. Shadbolt was building textured surfaces and flattening the picture plane. The properties of colour cause space to recede and advance, and the abstracted objects activate across the surface with organic mysteriousness. It is a painting that exudes an exhilarating sense of freedom and inner excitement that Shadbolt was experiencing.
