Kurt Jackson: Obsession – Following the Surfer

Autumn/Winter 2016.

The eagerly awaited new main space of the Jackson Foundation gallery opened in September with the show Kurt Jackson: Obsession – Following The Surfer.

Obsession, a series of paintings, sculpture and ceramics, sees Jackson follow his studio assistant on surfing trips around the Cornish coast.

Kurt Jackson’s work has always explored the connection between our environment and us; how we see, feel about and treat the world around us. We may live, work or even just play in the landscape but this link, this way of fitting in and using the world out there, gives us a connection – it molds us and changes us and sometimes in turn may change that world.

“Often it’s argued that the surfers path is a spiritual one – this connection between the individual and the wave, the ocean hosting its rider – but what is certain is that it opens the eyes of that person to the natural world, to an extraordinarily beautiful and powerful side of nature that needs respect and admiration and in the long run our protection and conservation.” – Kurt Jackson

For Obsession – Following the Surfer, Jackson has partnered with Surfers Against Sewage to highlight the charity’s campaign to protect the UK’s oceans, waves and beaches for us all to enjoy safely and sustainably. SAS will have the top floor of the gallery space to showcase elements of their history and campaign work, highlighting the devastating effects of pollution in our seas.
