Brooklyn based artist Oliver Jeffers comes to London with his Nothing To See Here exhibition opening 12th September at Lazardies Rathbone Gallery.

Referencing well-known 18th and 19th century European landscape and still-life paintings, Jeffers explores the notion that knowledge is power. Playing with themes of censorship and ignorance the artist re-invents the classic frames of European art and tries to convince his audience that the only true way to learn is through experience.

Encouraging the viewers to take a closer look, start questioning the reality and do not take someone else’s word for everything, Jeffers encourages the viewer to break the rules and immerse into his inquisitive world.
