Current Exhibition

A Prehistoric Cornwall

This body of work sees Jackson visit the sites of prehistoric Cornwall and captures the county’s extraordinary range of ancient monuments with a new series of paintings and sculpture.

The landscape is full of these monuments. Some are obvious and picturesque – a stone circle – while others are incongruous, hidden and overlooked despite their size and historical significance; smothered by dual-carriageways, roundabouts and car dealerships.

All of these monuments are an important and integral part of the Cornish landscape as well as its culture, they are a piece of Cornish heritage.

This exhibition is presented in collaboration with The Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Partnership.

August 29th 2020 – February 2021.

Upcoming Exhibition

The Green Ways

This ‘touring’ show focuses on paintings of trees that he and his wife Caroline planted twenty-years ago and that have, over time, formed hollow ‘greenways’ or paths in the interstices between the lines of planting, along which he walked every day from his house to his studio. The tunnels, laced with the play of light and shade; groves of wildflowers, insects and birds celebrated by Jackson in these paintings.

“The tragedy of the beginning of the pandemic collided with one of the most magnificent springs I can remember. People reassessed their immediate surroundings and nature lent a helping hand to get through those difficult times.” – Kurt Jackson
