In his work, Welsh artist Sebastian Jefford (b. 1990) explores reconstructed and revived ideas in which time, history and image are inextricably intertwined. Inevitably, the theme of artificiality emerges in his explorations. His large-scale rosettes installed on traditional gabled roofs refer to medieval paintings full of moralism, whose sediment envelops our contemporary encounters with everyday life. The surface of the soft foam wall relief works recalls the mortifying process of pressing flowers. The artist questions how our understanding of history is shaped and internalized by our seemingly symptomless “natural” linear thinking. The artist studied at the Royal Academy Schools in London, the University of the West of England in Bristol, and the Universität der Künste in Berlin.
