Canadian Suburbia



Very little is natural in the images Kyle Jeffers (b. 1998) shows us: everything here seems artificial and manufactured; the spaces we humans create are far removed from anything seen in the natural world. We paint our world in striking colours of pink, purple, and yellow, which can be found in nature, but not in this way.

Jeffer’s photographs are clean, colourful, and carefully composed. There are often hints to be found, here and there, of the nature: glimpses of trees, snow, and fog keep us grounded in the natural world. By not opting for pure abstraction here, he shows us how abstract the spaces we manufacture in reality are.
