The first is a surfboard decorated with sardines, the second is a collection of 100 mini canvases. So you have 101 chances to buy an original Kurt Jackson piece of art, for a relatively small sum and the money will go to charity!
Here’s more information on each of the artworks and how you can buy them:
The Surfboard – Cornish Sardines
The surfboard depicts a shoal of Cornish Sardines swimming across the board with 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, artist, charitable nice guy
The surfboard is currently being auctioned on eBay, bids close Sunday 16th October.
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. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Canvases will be sold from Monday 17th October, for £100 + £10 postage each. Original Kurt Jackson paintings usually sell for £1,000s, and while these are mini paintings they’re still a bargain. So get in quick.
All proceeds from the sale of the surfboard and the sale of the canvases will go to Surfers Against Sewage.
