A delicate, spidery, amazingly complex ink and/or watercolor abstract drawing on heavy paper, signed at lower right by the noted western Canadian listed artist JACK MARLOWE WISE (1926-1996), bearing on the backing a circa 1960's label of the Bau-Xi Gallery of Vancouver, British Columbia. The work, measuring 11 1/4" by 7 1/2", is housed in a simple frame measuring 18" by 14". Wise is considered a significant Canadian artist. Born in Iowa in 1926, he was in British Columbia in 1963 (the very year this is dated). He is considered a painter, illustrator, printmaker, and art educator. Works are in public collections throughout Canada, a large group held at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria (which granted him a major exhibition in 1978). In 1966 Wise went to northern India, where he explored spirituality in art. Today, his work is considered to have a connection to that of the so-called Northwest School led by Mark Tobey and Morris Graves. Note the gold painted edges of the heavy paper, which is floating above a dark green background. Frame is missing a silvery inner fillet bar at top. Take the time to truly study the detail and complexity of the drawing.
