Kurt Jackson: Frenchman’s Creek

Part of the reason for my mini-break in Cornwall was a long-held wish to see Kurt Jackson’s gallery in St Just, near Land’s End. His new major exhibition had just opened –  Frenchman’s Creek, inspired by the Daphne Du Maurier novel, set in the creek on the Helford river. The gallery (a renovated old garage) was beautiful and, as always, Jackson’s landscapes were stunning and atmospheric.

However, I found myself most drawn to Jackson’s rough sketches on the pages of an old copy of Du Maurier’s novel. I definitely like art which is spontaneous, quickly made, rougher, a little less than perfect…

    He is such a talented man – I first liked his work on “Watercolour Challenge” many years ago!
