“Our existence depends on this biodiversity; the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink ultimately all requires it.”
Kurt Jackson’s touring exhibition aims to demonstrate (and celebrate) the amazingly biodiverse world we live in.
All life-forms have the same entitlement to exist as we do; they are all individually fascinating, extraordinary and beautiful organisms in their own right.
By being aware of the life we share this planet with, we can appreciate it and work to conserve it.
Kurt Jackson’s Biodiversity is an exhibition of paintings, found objects and sculpture made in various locations across the UK that highlight the specific biodiversity of each area.
Jacksons’ work also looks demonstrate how biodiverse habitats are affected as a result of human activity and climate change. This new body of work focuses on the vital interdependence of lifeforms and the landscapes they inhabit.
