A little word from Nigel Peake

“6 days, 40 hours of traveling to get to and return from, 4 taxis, 4 trains, 2 boats, 3 ferries, 3 different sleeping places, and 102 km walked, 2 days of sunshine, 2 days of gales, 1 day of fog, 3 islands, 66 pages drawn on, 5 pages written on.

Islands are uncanny places. They can be difficult to get to and tricky to return from. The Isles of Scilly have many sides, wild and tame, colourful and monochrome, loud and quiet. I did not have any expectations, which is the beautiful thing about the unknown. I did no research and so I found things by mistake or by seeing and then walking to it. Following things in the distance, outcrops or inlets, signal towers or light houses. When I got to where I was going I would then just sit and look out into the far.It is not my nature to be instant in reaction to a place, I like to be slow especially when I am trying to figure out what I am going to make.

The gentleness of the strong wind, the quietness of the night and the strength of the sea. The distance of the sea.”

In essence The Jaunt is a project that wants to create opportunities and possibilities for artists. The core of the project is to let artists travel the world in order to become inspired, but hopefully the experience has an effect on the artists that transcend that limited time frame and expand into their artistic practise as a whole. In this way The Jaunt wishes to become a catalyst for progress and new insights into the creative process of our artists. The first step of this process is taking the artist outside of their comfort zone and let them experience completely new surroundings.

In our Jaunt archive we present prints from our trips which haven't sold out. Of each print there are about 10 or less prints left, so this is your chance to own one of these beautiful prints.
