Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Jeff Sylvester first began his art career over twenty years ago after graduating with graphic design from Grant MacEwan University. Sylvester’s work can be seen in private and corporate collections all across Canada and US.

Through an intricate process of layering thick coats of clear epoxy between paint, wood panel, and frisket, Jeff Sylvester is able to create dynamic compositions that move and shift with the changing light throughout the day. “The paint plays a crucial role in that it is the colour and texture to the image, but it’s the resin that brings it to life”.

Using haunting motifs of communication and aircraft towers, Sylvester's intricate resin and wood panel paintings investigates the integration of technology found in natural landscapes.
