Our September Book of the Month is the beautiful Kurt Jackson's Sea - now 20% off with code MONTH20 until the end of September. This is Lund Humphries' fourth publication on the art of Kurt Jackson, following Kurt Jackson Sketchbooks, Kurt Jackson's Botanical Landscape, and A Kurt Jackson Bestiary.
For Kurt Jackson (b.1961), ‘Painting the sea could become an obsession, an entire oeuvre in its own right, an endless life absorbing task.’ And, as this book attests, Jackson’s dedication to capturing its constant shape shifting – stillness to thundering force, shallows to mysterious depths – have brought forth paintings that communicate the sea's ebb and flow, its magic and elusiveness.
This Summer our Commissioning Editor for Modern and Contemporary Art Lucy Clark travelled to Cornwall and was inspired by some of the same seas and skies as inspire the St Just local, Kurt Jackson... Scroll down for some sunny seaside snaps – below: a walk at Lantic Bay on a sunny August afternoon:
