“Walking takes one from A to B, but the pace, the pacing determines the nature of the walk.”

In a series of new paintings, in his latest exhibition, ‘A One Mile Walk’ at Campden Gallery, leading British contemporary artist, Kurt Jackson, takes us on a leisurely stroll, close to where he lives in Cornwall.

Starting on the Cornish uplands of Penwith’s bony spine, he leads us on this slow amble down through bronze-age field systems and moors, and torrent-eroded gullies. Taking in the sound of birds and the smell of the peaty brown earth, via prehistoric paths and tracks, through farms and past grazing shorthorn cattle we enter the world of the tinner, the miner, the miller and the farmer.
