Last week we visited Gestalten, a nice space in Berlin Mitte, focusing on pushing contemporary creatives, selling books and other little treasuries. They are also holding exhibitions on a regular basis. Currently they present HERE OR THERE, a solo exhibition by Oliver Jeffers. Widely known as a creator of picture books for children, Gestalten shows some of Jeffers latest artworks. Inspired by the gap that exists between logical thinking and emotional understanding, Jeffer’s works explore this chasm. The featured paintings tell stories and pose provocative philosophical questions through the masterful use of space in composition.
