"Kurt Jackson's botanical art is urgently wondrous." - Rob Macfarlane
Kurt Jackson's Botanical Landscape
Kurt Jackson with a foreword by Tim Smit and an introduction by Robert Macfarlane
DescriptionKurt Jackson’s Botanical Landscape is a new collection of poems, paintings, drawings, sculptures and printmaking by the artist and staunch environmentalist: responses to his engagement with and rich experience within the natural world of flora.
From day-to-day plants – weeds, the flowers in the hedge, familiar trees and the vegetable garden – to the more unusual, twisted forms and strange fruit of the undergrowth, Jackson’s works celebrate the staggering diversity of the plant kingdom.
For the art enthusiast, the naturalist, the gardener and the armchair horticulturist, Kurt Jackson’s Botanical Landscape maps a particularly expressive communion with nature and offers a unique and beguiling interpretation of the natural world.
