From a huge painting depicting the Glastonbury Festival to a frozen Loch Morlich, Paddington Station, a New Forest box of oak, Bristol docks and Tintagel Island, Kurt Jackson’s latest project has resulted in a stunning collection of work that spans two galleries at the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro.

Varying in scale from postcard-size illustrations to large canvasses, ‘Place’ explores the physical diversity of the British landscape through the personal descriptions of a place that 32 contributors were invited to talk about.

These people included authors, scientists, poets, colleagues and friends of the artist. “I asked them to send me somewhere,” said Kurt.

“Every place exists as a |narrative between the place and person who chose it. The pieces speak for themselves.”

“We are hugely excited to be staging ‘Place’ at the Royal Cornwall Museum,” said director Ian Wall. “It’s a real honour and privilege.”

The exhibition will run until October 3. Kurt will also be giving the Royal Institution of Cornwall Spring Lecture about the project on Thursday, May 21 at 6.30pm.

Entry is free for RIC members, for non-members the cost is £7.50 each.

The museum is open on Bank Holidays and Monday to Saturday inclusive, entry to the Royal Cornwall Museum costs just £4.50 for an adult annual pass – children and young people aged 18 and under go free.
