Description
A flock of sheep graze on verdant grass. A grey sky can be seen beyond.

Joan Fear was brought up in Raglan and joined the Waikato Society of Arts and as a young woman had her first solo exhibition in 1965. She was also a member of the studio art group, along with artists like Para Matchitt and Ray Starr, who were pioneering advocates of modern art. Her work ranges across several genres: portraits, landscapes, still life and large scale studies of rural and urban life. An advocate of the regionalist approach, Fear’s paintings demonstrate her love of the local landscape and its communities.
