In this hyperrealistic painting of a close-up view of an eye framed by delicate white flowers, artist David Shepherd investigates taking people out of gender. "Today, parents try to interpret their child's gender," says David. "Should teenagers have the right to transition? Some people want to be a fox hiding in the flowers. The viewer cannot know if the model is a man or woman, a boy or girl. Regardless all people are beautiful. Our eyes are a window to our souls - what is within us is what is important."

David Shepherd

Stoney Creek, Canada

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.
