About Jeffery Robert Fear

My objective is to discover a composition that captivates me visually or moves me, emotionally or intellectually. I then capture the scene digitally and create a compelling image that I hope will elicit the same response or reaction in others.
Since art college, my entire life has been involved in the visual arts and the pursuit of design excellence. Design is my touchstone and the primary criteria in every decision I make.
Since my first visit to an art museum as a child, I have loved modern and contemporary art in all its forms. This passion and appreciation of the visual arts is why I chose design as a lifelong vocation.
I have studied modern and contemporary masters and sought out their work in museums and galleries in Canada, the United States, and Europe. It is an enduring passion that engages me everyday through multiple on-line sources.
With a recent sense of increased creativity (perhaps delusional) I have felt driven to produce my own abstract work. Advances in cameras, lenses, and software, accompanied by exceptional new printing methods, have allowed me to create large scale, vibrant, compelling abstract art that goes beyond the confines of photography.
My objective is to capture abstract compositions in the world around us. With every image recorded, I envision the final result. Imaging software is like an artist’s toolbox and I use several sophisticated applications to manipulate the original digital image to create the anticipated outcome. Watching my vision gradually appear on my monitor is magical.
