Jill Lear is an American contemporary artist who resides in Idaho. She trained at the New York Studio School in the USA and at La Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture in Paris, France. Lear portrays landscapes, focusing on trees and their symbolic nature.

Trees as witnesses

Lear begins with a single tree in the landscape: ancient, complex, even grotesque, and a witness to history. She views her process as a mapping of the experience of being in and thinking about nature, and her work serves to transcribe the way we process the world around us. Lear is interested in how trees witness history and how these ancient trees provide a silent record of the past.

An impressionistic approach

Lear begins with a topographic study involving measurement, proportion, negative space and positive forms. She also brings her impressions of the scene, considering territory, light, space and sound; she paints the experience, leaving only the major lines and colours of the landscape. Lear distils these elements to create a modern map of the ancient world of the tree. As with maps, she invites the viewer to consider what the white spaces might be concealing.

National acclaim

Lear has exhibited widely across the USA, on both coasts, and overseas in Switzerland. She has received several awards and fellowships, such as from the Drawing Center in New York. Lear has published a book of her work, Witness Trees of Texas, and her work features in numerous private and public collections.
