“…the rocky land has been shaped by the villagers for thousands of years, melded and moulded into an arboriculture where the olive tree reigns supreme…”

Kurt Jackson, 2018

Kurt Jackson brings the Med to Messums gallery, London with his Olive and Fig: Provence exhibition. This body of work evokes the heat, the sound of cicadas and the precious shade offered by the olive groves in the midday sun and runs May 2nd – 25th 2018.

“As you leave Claviers and climb uphill out of the village following the narrow sun-splashed and shadow-striped road, you reach the terraced slopes of St Marc. There the contours of this once forested rocky land have been shaped by the villagers for thousands of years, melded and moulded into an arboriculture where the olive tree reigns supreme.” – Kurt Jackson
