Boyd scheer

As a boy, Scheer fell in love with Vincent van Gogh and knew he wanted to be a painter. He trained for 13 years in his youth by Wassily Sommer, Russian-born modernist landscape and portrait artist who moved to Anchorage, Alaska, becoming a US citizen. His style was impressionistic, but changed with the times towards a more sparing abstract.  Sommer was, in turned, trained by Oskar Kokoshka, known for his intense expressionism.

As a young man, Scheer studied the works of George Gurdjieff, and his understudy, J. G. Bennett, in search of  a higher state of consciousness. This thread led inexorably to Beshara and the Gift of Compassion held forth in the works of Ibn Arabi and the “Brides of Absoluteness.”
