THE SURFBOARD – ‘CORNISH SARDINES’
A shoal of Cornish Sardines swim across the board and the light catches flashes of green, blue, yellow and silver, as water splashes and sparkles around them.
“I wanted to create a piece that reflected the obsessions of the surfer; it’s all about the sea and the powerful way in which it connects the people who ride the wave to the creatures who swim within it…” – Kurt Jackson
The surfboard will be on display at Jackson Foundation from 14 September as part of the exhibition Kurt Jackson: OBSESSION – Following the Surfer and auctioned on eBay from Thursday 6th October finishing on Sunday 16th October, to register your interest please email [email protected]
‘100 CANVASES SET ADRIFT’
Jackson has created one painting made up from one hundred small canvases with the intention of setting each piece ‘adrift’. The buyers of each canvas sold will form part of a wider project to track each individual piece – when the painting breaks apart, where will each piece end up? A map will then be created to show the final destinations of each part of the painting.
“Jackson has created a truly unique piece that makes us think about the way in which objects break up in the ocean and drift off to places far and wide across the globe.” Hugo Tagholm, CEO, SAS
The Canvases Set Adrift will be on display at Jackson Foundation on Saturday 15th October and sold through Surfers Against Sewage, to register your interest please email [email protected]
All proceeds from the sale of the surfboard and the sale of the canvases will go to Surfers Against Sewage.
