Kurt Jackson: River at the Horniman Museum, Christmas 2014

Kurt Jackson’s work captures a sense of place and of the essence of individual rivers: from the Thames, river of deep mud and slowly-moving history, to an path in Provence down an almost-dry riverbed, using both traditional media and multimedia installations. At River, on show at the Horniman Museum until January 25, I was very taken with a painting which I recognised immediately as the Thames – the depths of blue water and brown mud could only be the mouth of the river I have known since childhood.
