About This Art Original

Oliver Jeffers is inspired by the gap that exists between logical thinking and emotional understanding. The captivating collection of work shown in his exhibition HERE OR THERE at Gestalten Space investigates this chasm. The featured paintings tell stories and pose provocative philosophical questions through the masterful use of space in composition.
