Kurt Jackson has a new two-part show opening with Messums Gallery this December.
The first instalment of this exhibition – shown in two parts at both Messums London and Wiltshire galleries – traces the origins of the River Stour – his ‘father’s river’ – on the east coast of England and explores the relationship between life and death and flora and fauna, before turning to another river source: this time in the Southwest where the River Nadder springs and begins its descent into Salisbury.
His second river journey also has familial connections, following the course of the Fonthill Brook, one-hundred yards from Messums Wilshire where these paintings will be shown. It was here in Wiltshire that Jackson’s maternal grandparents settled to raise a family before the war.
