Catalogue to accompany Kurt Jackson's 2018 solo exhibition Scilly at the Jackson Foundation Gallery, St Just.
Kurt Jackson’s 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.
