"In a sense [the 1976 pictures] represent a culmination and distillation of the Art Nouveau arabesque, an arabesque now shorn of its enclosing and symbolizing tendency to release its inherent decorative potential and create a pictorial vocabulary of enormous flexibility and expressive power. The paintings seem literally drawn with color. Color rhythms, rhythmic drawing and swirling, dancing grounds combine to produce some of the most lyrical art since Matisse."
Terry Fenton, "Jack Bush," in Exh. Cat., The Art Gallery of Ontario, Jack Bush: A Retrospective, 1976, n.p.
