Jeff Fornear.........aka.... iSEEthings...

 

Ancient mind... still active...

.... learning to SEE again...

.... and CREATE again...

.... and living each day with conscious awareness of the truly Awesome Time and Space we live in!

 

“We are one of many appearances of the thing called Life; we are not its perfect image, for it has no perfect image except Life, and life is multitudinous and emergent in the stream of time.”

― Loren Eiseley, The Immense Journey: An Imaginative Naturalist Explores the Mysteries of Man and Nature

 

“The journey is difficult, immense. We will travel as far as we can, but we cannot in one lifetime see all that we would like to see or to learn all that we hunger to know.”

― Loren Eiseley

 

"Seeing must be direct, for a warrior can't use his time to unravel what he himself is seeing . Seeing is seeing because it cuts through all that nonsense. A warrior asks a question, and through his seeing he gets an answer"

 

DON JUAN MATUS, Tales of Power

Have been an artist internally since i was 5 years old. Studied art in S. California back in my old Hippie days but then was forced into many years of jobs with little creativity. Now retired i have been feeding my artistic side well and doing digital photography with strong post-processing for a few years now. It helps satisfy my very active creative urge.

 

The actual detailed photos are great but i truly enjoy pumping them up a bit and going wandering further in the impressionistic, surreal, scifi/fantasy and abstract directions. i live for COLOR and LIGHT! Many will probably think my works may be overdone... but the colors, light brightness and contrasts are the basis of the energies i feel when creating these works.

 

... after 20 years of digital art play, I have no Defined STYLE, but i've truly enjoyed the Creative Journeys and do presently feel a strong pull to a weird combo of Asian and Native American "Mandalic Spiritual" art ...with... overwhelming complex Industrial/Tech Forms.

Its beginning to be my way of combining those two disparate Beliefs/Energies into works for our Time & Space. Works that are manifestations of feelings and thoughts I put into them with the hope they re-vibrate and glow transmitting some of that to each viewer.

 

i am very interested in how we REALLY SEE with eyes and brain... and with computer displayed PHOTON driven Art we can do things never before possible in 2 dimensions...

I have enjoyed Jeff's photos for a long time now, so it's time I provided a testimonial to his talent. ELECTRIC! Viewing Jeff's photos are like grabbing hold of a live wire! If you're dull and lifeless his photos will pleasantly shock you back to a state of alertness and vitality, proving that the cold, cruel world can be overcome, can be molded, altered, and manipulated into something positive and passionate. There's a sense of pathos evoked here, intermingled with an admiration for the human spirit's ability to triumph over the daily grind. These are just a few of the wonderful emotional conundrums that Jeff brings to his photographs...and his technical skills are beyond reproach! Brother, I love your work, and I say to you in words which you will fondly recall and recognize: "Onward, through the fog!"

Beware all ye that enter the photostream of Jeff.....aka......ISEEthings.........a man of many photo manipulative talents and visions both mind disturbing and otherwise....irrefutable proof that alien beings did proliferate with our ancestors and not all that long ago is abundantly scattered among the iridescently cosmic 4th dimensional eye popping menagerie of whimsical chortle evoking phantasmagorical not your every day objects of desire yet profound in all five senses and penetrating even deeper in the sixth and seventh and then some photos he uploads!!! If I had to stipulate a human worthy of becoming supreme being of our anti-universe I would not hesitate to assign Jeff to that position knowing full well that his ever penetrating vision that borders on x-ray nay gamma ray intensity would serve the billions and billions in a McDonalds efficiency that would render death marches and funerals obsolete for ever and ever!!! Rock on......cosmic seeing dude....Rock on!!!!!
