Artist's Story

Jeff Willmore was born in 1954. A design school drop-out who drifted into art school on the rebound, he graduated in 1980 with a diploma of Fine Art from Fanshawe College in London, Ontario. Today he is a senior artist. His practice has established a strong regional profile that continues to find a place within an expanding community of acceptance. His work can be found in the collections of the Canada Council Art Bank, Western University and Museum London among others. He was awarded the RBC Canadian Painting Competition prize as runner-up in 1999 and has served on granting juries for the Ontario Arts Council.

This work navigates a snarl of modern, representational new world influences, and as these influences may predict, the painting has conventional hinges and strong graphic elements. The work avoids sentimentality and the purely derivative, functioning within a rough continuum that simply persists.
