Book: Kurt Jackson Sketchbooks

Kurt Jackson’s art is genuinely radical. It is an intrinsic part of his wider, awareness-changing agenda. Jackson’s art makes actual the brightness of seeing clearly, moments of heightened consciousness, vital both for science and for art.’ Julian Spalding, Art UK, September 2021

Published to coincide with the exhibition This Place: St Just in Penwith (8 September to 6 October 2012), this is the first book to discuss Kurt Jackson’s assertion that his sketchbooks, as a body of work in their own right, should be regarded as seriously as his paintings, prints and sculpture.

Drawing on a selection of twenty sketchbooks dating from 2007 − of differing sizes and a variety of media – this book offers a rare insight into the mind of a highly creative and original artist widely known for his individual watercolours, oils and acrylics inspired mainly by the Cornish landscapes which surround him and his deep understanding of natural history, ecology, and humanitarian and environmental issues.

 Related to Kurt Jackson, Mermaids' Tears at Dovecot Studios 2 October – 5 February 2022. Exhibition coincides with the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 31 October – 12 November 2021.
