Lazarides Rathbone welcomes Brooklyn based artist Oliver Jeffers for his first London exhibition, Nothing To See Here.
Later this week Jeffers will present a new series of works, which both question and observe modern life and its many conundrums. Referencing familiar 18th and 19th century European landscape and still-life painting, the artist investigates, via themes of censorship and ignorance, the notion that knowledge is power. This is primarily fueled by the dilemma of trying to understand what is not yet understood versus the potential comfort offered by being willfully oblivious.
Through this exhibition of thought provoking painting Jeffers aims to ask "Are we blindly ignorant or are our eyes wide open in the dark?". Come and explore the inquisitive world of Oliver Jeffers.
Exhibition opens Friday 13th of September 2013 and runs until Thursday 3rd of October 2013.
