Jeffery Becton: Digital Montage is pioneer in the field of photo-based art, who creates provocative digital montages inspired by the tidal reaches and atmospheric weather near his Deer Isle home. Author Deborah Weisgall beautifully describes his montages in the monograph Jeffery Becton: Border World (Marshall Wilkes 2014): “Jeffery Becton’s works are meditations on ambivalence: digital montages, beautiful and unsettling mashups, altered realities. . . . Becton is really exploring our own permeability.” Becton’s work has been in numerous solo, group, and juried exhibitions, and has been highlighted in national and international publications. In 2016, the Bates College Museum of Art hosted a solo exhibition of Becton’s large-scale monographs, which then traveled to the Daura Gallery at the University of Tennessee, the Vero Beach Museum of Art in Florida, and to Lynchburg College in Virginia. His work is included in the museum collections of Bates College of Art, Farnsworth Museum of Art, and Portland Museum of Art, among others.
