A celebration, not only of the chalk stream, this fragile English landscape that is stuffed with life, but also of all aspects of our life journey. This is a place of coincidence, crossed paths, rediscovery and return.

Kurt Jackson, 2019

Over the last five years Kurt Jackson has followed the River Stour – his father’s river – tracing its journey from unassuming beginnings on Wratting Common in Cambridgeshire as it winds through the landscapes of Constable and Gainsborough towards Harwich where it emerges into the North Sea. It is the river he discovered through his father, the artist Peter Jackson who lived beside it for 30 years. Jackson returned to capture this unique landscape for this new body of paintings to be shown at Messums London.
