Observations on Modern Life at Lazinc Gallery in London includes over 50 pieces of the Oliver Jeffer’s sculptural and collage work from over the last decade.
Jeffers uses sculpture, painting, found images and collage to hone in on the whimsies of our world with a humorous, yet poignant and often political tone.
“It is a great and confusing time to be on earth. Life has never been safer and more pleasant, historically speaking, however with increasingly efficient ways of traveling and communicating – the more anyone gets done, the busier they seem to be. With the ability to hear from anyone anywhere about anything, humans are somehow not clearer in their thoughts and actions, but rather more distracted.” – Oliver Jeffers
