Kurt Jackson celebrates the lifesaving efforts of the RNLI through an ambitious new series of paintings, installation and mixed media work.
RNLI Cornwall features over 75 paintings varying in scale – from postcard sized pieces to large canvasses measured in metres – that capture the familiar sight of the charity’s blue and orange lifeboats nestled into Cornish harbours and coastlines, and the lifeguards at the centre of Cornish beaches scenes.
A selection of the paintings is of the old Penlee lifeboat station which Kurt has captured as it was left after the disaster that claimed sixteen lives in 1981. A loss still felt today. A poignant reminder of the sacrifice made.
For the duration of this exhibition, the Jackson Foundation will be holding a prize draw to win a Kurt Jackson painting worth £3,500, with each ticket purchased equalling one entry and the winner randomly selected at the exhibition’s conclusion.
100% of the proceeds from the prize draw will be donated to support the RNLI.
18th March – 19th August 2023.
Jackson Foundation, North Row, St Just, TR19 7LB.
