Kurt Paints on Scilly.

Kurt Jackson Scilly

September 1st – October 27th

“It is here that I unroll my canvases and prop my boards, where the sand always gets in the paint, the wind and sun dry everything too quickly, the rain washes it all away and everything is so beautiful.”

Kurt Jackson, 2018

Kurt Jackson’s latest exhibition explores the quiet wildness of Scilly. The islands have been part of Kurt’s life for over 30 years, and he often visits to lay down his canvases on the wind buffeted shores in an attempt to capture their unique beauty.  Perched in the open ocean and battered by the elements, they remain a pristine refuge from the relentless pace of modern life.

 

Comprised of works created in all weathers over the past five years, the exhibition explores not just the coastline, with its bright white sands and aquamarine seas, but also the land itself.  From the tufty hillocks where Mediterranean insects and flora coexist with the native species to cottages and flower-filled fields to high tottering dry-stone perforated walls, Kurt peers into the unique habitats which make the archipelago such a rich and remarkable place.

Exhibition catalogue can be purchased here.
