Chris Jefferies is deeply inspired by the ever changing skyline and mass of man made cityscapes. Yet also influenced by the vast open spaces of Cornwall where he grew up. His work explores the diversity of the landscape and his own personal connection to these polar opposites.
Through a process of construction and deconstruction using a wide variety of mixed media, Chris examines similarities and contradictions taken from architectural geometric shapes, negative & positive space, light, shadow, texture and excavation: both natural and man made, until he reaches the essence of landscape. These pared back abstract compositions reflect his own personal sense of place and invites the viewer to question their own experience of their surrounding environment.
