11 January – 16 February 2020
For this exhibition – the second of a two-part show that opens at Messums London in December 2019 – Jackson traces the origins of his second river and the northern parts of the Cranborne Chase ecosystem where the River Nadder springs and begins its descent into Salisbury. Following the course of the Fonthill Brook, a mere one-hundred yards from Messums Wiltshire where these paintings will be shown, Jackson has produced a body of work that highlights a place of coincidence, crossed paths, rediscovery and return, and reveal ‘a glorious  nature-filled watercourse, [and] a fragile precious habitat that deserves our continuing respect.’
Pre-order the catalogue in either paperback or a signed by the artist limited edition hardback version.
