Halverson Frazier resides in Laguna Beach, California where he is constantly inspired by the dramatic vistas and topography of the Pacific shoreline.
A recent critical review from an exhibition at L.A. Artcore gallery in Los Angeles states the following:
"As an artist, Frazier can be approached from several points of reference. Viewing one exhibit is like standing in the center of a panopticon, observing but a slice of an encircling range of expressions. Turn around and an entirely different voice from the artist's refined retinue of skills is encountered. The polish in each arena of his work indicates thoroughness and canvas mileage, while his language indicates a vision of the artist that today is more often dismissed, than actually attempted in earnest. What we encounter in his recent abstract paintings titled, Transposition Series. is a dismissal of conflict, done through the wordless grace of being devoted to skillful means. Having his more primal, pivotal point to work from, his recent abstract paintings are exposures like rock formations in the wild, and in that way histrionic, rather than a postured drapery of theoretical historicity."
Frazier holds an MFA from the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena California where he has taught, both in the U.S. and abroad, as professor of design and academic studies. His varied work has been exhibited in various museums, galleries, and held in private collections. In addition to painting, his fine art photography has been exhibited and published. He continues to work in both mediums often fusing references of photography with his painting and experimenting with aspects of digital technology.
