Kurt Jackson creates two special commissions in support of pioneering environmental charity Surfers Against Sewage (SAS).
THE SURFBOARD – ‘CORNISH SARDINES’
The eBay auction has raised £4,350.
A shoal of Cornish Sardines swim across the board and the light catches flashes of green, blue, yellow and silver, as water splashes and sparkles around them.
“I wanted to create a piece that reflected the obsessions of the surfer; it’s all about the sea and the powerful way in which it connects the people who ride the wave to the creatures who swim within it…” – Kurt Jackson
The surfboard is on display at Jackson Foundation as part of the exhibition Kurt Jackson: OBSESSION – Following the Surfer and was auctioned on eBay finishing on Sunday 16th October 20:41:14 BST.
This eBay auction has ended raising £4,350 for SAS.

‘100 CANVASES SET ADRIFT’
These canvasses have raised £10,000.
Jackson has created one painting made up from one hundred small canvases with the intention of setting each piece ‘adrift’. The buyers of each canvas sold will form part of a wider project to track each individual piece – when the painting breaks apart, where will each piece end up? A map will then be created to show the final destinations of each part of the painting.
“Jackson has created a truly unique piece that makes us think about the way in which objects break up in the ocean and drift off to places far and wide across the globe.” Hugo Tagholm, CEO, SAS
All proceeds from the sale of the surfboard and the sale of the canvases went to Surfers Against Sewage.
