Sylvester, Jeff

Jeff Sylvester works and lives in Edmonton, AB. Jeff’s explores the occupation of natural landscapes by modern infrastructure through his work. Common elements include communication towers, neighbourhoods, roadways and 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.
