His still-life paintings referenced 18th & 19th century landscapes whilst featuring contrasting images of men in smart suits and objects associated with modern-life. These subjects provided the perfect contradiction to explore recurring themes of censorship and power in today's society. Through these works the artist studied society's desire to be in control, and explored the issue of social ignorance and peoples' relentless need to feel empowered.
An incredibly thought-provoking collection of works demonstrating Oliver Jeffers' differing artistic approaches to very pertinent social issues. It was humbling to be able to see these works up close and the exhibition exceeded all my expectations - a beautiful collection of artwork!
A big thank you to my beautiful, favourite red-head, Melissa, who accompanied me!
