This painting makes me think of advertising, media and social networking. These industries sole purpose is to make you pay attention and the truth behind what we are shown is often hidden behind clever or controversial ideas. The more we engage with these things the bigger they become. It is ironic that people comment and talk about something they hate only to help it grow larger.
About the Artist
Canadian artist David Shepherd fuses techniques from both old and modern masters to create contemporary interpretations of the human form. While offering strong nods to pop art and cubism, the work remains grounded by David’s training in 19th Century academic realism. Combining discrete techniques within a single tableau is initially jarring to the viewer, creating an unexpected visual complexity in the work and demonstrating the artist’s breadth of skills. “I think in the future we will be much more interested in works of art that show a mastery of multiple styles,” says David. Each artwork effectually suggests the surreal nature of human existence within a convoluted modern society.
