Kurt Jackson ‘The Fonthill Brook’


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.’
