Landscapes of the Mind
December 3 – December 23, 2016
Reception: Thursday, December 8, 2016 6-8 PM

Jac Fear paints as a tribute to the raw power of the Australian landscape, exposing both beauty and fragility. Laced throughout his work are symbols—at times hidden beneath layers of paint—that connect multiple pieces, telling a story larger than any given canvas. Fear places his work outside where the acrylics bake in hot sunlight, allowing the paint to crack like dry earth. After a week, he revisits the canvas with oil and spray paint, adding further dimension to his work. Using hand cut stencils to depict trees and bushes, Fear evokes Paleolithic cave paintings while creating a consistency between pieces. 

Fear often references moments from his own life—which he terms “lived events”—in his work. With these autobiographical flashes, Fear hopes to convey a form of emotional blueprint for the viewer to connect with. This sense of connection is fundamental to art, he believes. “Art is the silent music,” he says. “It is there, in the present, something you can’t help but notice.”

Jac Fear lives and works in Perth, Western Australia.
