Jack Sures: A Sensual Touch a film by Linda Corbett
Canadian film
[S.l.] : Eyeris Inc., 2011.
This film is approx. 26 minutes long
Sensual, seductive, juicy, voluptuous, magic. These are some of the words people use to describe Jack Sures’ work in clay. It’s an intimate relationship that has lasted over five decades.
In JACK SURES_a sensual touch, filmmaker Linda Corbettpresents the magnificent public mural work of this internationally renowned Canadian artist. Born in the small prairie town of Melita, Manitoba, by the 1960’s Jack had studied in the U.S.A., travelled in Europe and worked at Chelsea Pottery in London, England and on the Tel Katzir Kibbutz in Israel.
“The first time I touched clay you could feel this organic, living mass ready to grow into something.” - Jack Sures
The deepest influences on his work have been Japanese aesthetics, Surrealism and the work of Hieronymus Bosch, but as part of the Regina Clay Movement, his early art flirted with California Funk imagery. As the film examines his murals for the Sturdy-Stone Centre, the Canadian Museum of Civilization, the Mino ‘89 / International Ceramics Competition and other locations we grow to appreciate how Jack Sures’ art engages us outside the gallery in an art experience that celebrates the tactile connections to nature in our everyday lives.
“He is as plastic as the material he is using.” - Timothy Long
