Lazarides Rathbone welcomes Brooklyn based artist Oliver Jeffers for his first London exhibition, Nothing To See Here. This September Jeffers will present a new series of works, which both question and observe modern life and its many conundrums. Referencing familiar 18th and 19th century European landscape and still-life painting, the artist investigates, via themes of censorship and ignorance, the notion that knowledge is power.

This August, Tel Aviv-based artist Know Hope makes his solo debut at Lazarides Rathbone with a new exhibition, The Abstract and The Very Real. Addressing the human condition and its collective social existence through a series of unique works and a site-specific installation, the exhibition questions the ubiquitous notion of the "abstract and the very real", the weight and burden of which though universally apparent is often unidentifiable to most.

It look us a second to realize that these landscapes by London-based photographer Carl Warner were far from conventional. Shooting the human forms in his studio and then later placeing them together in Photoshop, Warner has created a very interesting series that examines both our view of ourselves and ourselves in relation to our bodies and fellow humans.

If you happen to get yourself to London in the month of July, there is a good art show to check out: Cleon Peterson, "There Is A War," at London's The Outsiders. "Cleon Peterson's nightmarish tableaux feature scenes of a barbaric holocaust, where might is right and the weak are merely souls with holes for the strong to torment and abuse. Deviance is the norm, and the displaced individual is forced to navigate this wicked world alone, finding hollow bits of pleasure and meaning in violence, sex, religion and drugs."
