Amongst the large paintings to be shown is a monumental work: Do
you ever wonder what's out there? (10ft x 20ft), depicting a
wild atmospheric seascape that is as powerful and breathtaking as
standing on the cliffs in the teeth of an Atlantic gale. However,
the smaller works will create a sense of the breadth of Jackson's
The works in this exhibition are all based on Jackson's experience
of Priest Cove, near where he lives in West Penwith, in the far
west of Cornwall. These huge collaged paintings embody Jackson's
powerful and personal response to his environment, his thoughts,
feelings and memories which are the culmination of nearly fifteen
year's experience of working in this particular cove. Jackson's
work has a strong documentary element, depicting what he sees, but
he also translates into paint that mysterious, intuitive inner response
that captures the essential spirit of time and place.
A special feature for this venue will be a small number of works
on paper painted in situ in Priest Cove.
