Kurt Jackson's Sea (2021)
For Kurt Jackson ‘Painting the sea could become an obsession, an entire oeuvre in its own right, an endless life absorbing task’.
And, as this book (the first dedicated solely to his depictions of the sea) attests, Jackson’s dedication to capturing its constant shape shifting – stillness to thundering force, shallows to mysterious depths – has brought forth paintings that communicate the sea's ebb and flow, its magic and elusiveness.
Kurt Jackson's Sea captures the beauty of the artist's constantly evolving relationship with one of nature's most challenging subjects. Two-hundred colour images complement Jackson's reflections on his interactions with inspirational coastal landscapes - largely experienced in his native Cornwall, but stretching way beyond the county too.
Kurt Jackson's Sea is published by Lund Humphries and features a forward by award-winning art writer Julian Spalding, who pinpoints the importance of Jackson's artistic voice at a time of environmental emergency.
