Kurt Jackson - The Tamar Dowr Tamer

Kurt Jackson's latest exhibition, The Tamar - Dowr Tamer, opened at Lemon Street Gallery, Truro on the 6th of September.
It follows the river Tamar from source to sea through all of the seasons. Works include vast mixed media canvases, intimate pencil sketches, sculptures and three-dimensional pieces.
My favourite piece was the extremely evocative Tamarstone Wood (above right) 100 x 100cm Acrylic, ink, oil, wood and twigs £10,500
I am always taken by Kurt's collections such as Source Box, (left), 17 x 10 x 13cm, found objects and pencil, £850.
There were few of Kurt's signature seascapes in this show but the tidal reaches proved a rich source of inspiration. St John's Lake, June 2007, (right), 57 x 59cm, mixed media.
