Description
Early morning scene overlooking the Matakotuko Swamp near Ruapuke Beach in Raglan, New Zealand.

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.
