A new body of work by Kurt Jackson made over the last few years, whilst looking at and watching the population of shags and Cormorants seen along our coast and rivers.

PZ Angel

I saw an angel
In front of Lidl’s
Sentinel on the rocks
At the water’s lacy edge
Back lit
Lit from behind
By the lights of Lyonesse
Silhouetted Wings outstretched

Beak pointing
Towards the Mount
One feathered arm
Towards Marazion
And one to Newlyn
As though a sign post
Silent and still
From another world
Her black back to me
Illegally parked
On the sea front

Kurt Jackson, October 2017

“Jackson understands and has illuminated in this wonderful collection how the birds are beautiful and entirely at one with their place in the world. In short, he sees them, as we should, as a kind of living perfection.”
