Kurt Jackson

SATURDAY, Talks Barn


It’s a pleasure to welcome leading contemporary artist Kurt Jackson to speak at Porthilly Spirit.

Based in Cornwall since 1984, a dedication to and celebration of the environment is intrinsic to both Jackson’s politics and his art, and a holistic involvement with his subjects provides the springboard for his formal innovations. Jackson's practice involves both plain air and studio work and embraces an extensive range of materials and techniques including mixed media, large canvases, printmaking and sculpture.

Over the past thirty years Jackson has had numerous art publications released to accompany his exhibitions. He has been Artist in Residence on the Greenpeace ship Esperanza, at the Eden Project and at Glastonbury Festival since 1999. We can’t wait to hear some of his stories.
