There's a separating between the patterns and math in her mind and the stars in her heart. Where we used to look up at the night sky and imagine animals and stories and tales of our past, this was in our hearts. Now we focus on our minds and we use engineering, physics, and astrology to find an objective truth to our universe, and there is beauty in both.

Getting to Know David

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.
