The brain of Oliver Jeffers operates a little different than your standard artist as his work becomes more innovative with each passing project. The Belfast man invited a number of fortunate guests to witness the creation of his latest ‘Dipped Paintings’. Jeffers lowered his portraits into vibrant paint to cover the majority of the sitters who were linked by the experience of having witnessed personal loss close hand. His work is inspired by the idea that once something is gone you have to rely on an ‘imperfect memory’ and nothing more.
