'A Step Back', an exhibition by Craig Jefferson in Newtownards (near Belfast)

Craig Jefferson is a full-time professional artist and exhibits his paintings regularly in Belfast and London.  Two years ago Craig moved over to Northern Ireland from Edinburgh and he is now settled in Bangor with his wife and young family. Craig makes paintings and drawings that explore still life, figure and landscape subjects, seeking to investigate the profound qualities that exist in his surroundings.  The result is works of ambiguous form that occupy the space between realism and abstraction. This exhibition is a reflection on how the artist’s work has developed since his move to Northern Ireland in 2015 comparing old and new works.
