Jeff Sylvester explores, through his work, the occupation of natural landscapes by modern infrastructure. Common elements include communication towers, neighbourhoods, roadways and flocks of birds. These themes are sometimes found working together in his compositions, other times, isolated in their own haunting simplicity.
Meticulously hand-cut stencils are made to apply Sylvester’s imagery between layers of thick resin. Light passing through the layers provides the viewer with a sense of depth heightened by the tonal application of the paints.
His paintings can be seen in private, public and corporate collections across Canada and the U.S.
Born on 1973 in Edmonton, AB. Nationality is Canadian
