Collection: Shawn Shepherd

Shawn Shepherd is a multidisciplinary visual artist living in a high-rise in Victoria, BC. His painting practise spans twenty-nine years and has been informed by numerous interests such as human identity, consumer culture, art history, and notions of painting. Shawn is a recent graduate of the University of Victoria MFA Program.

Shawn Shepherd’s recent paintings and sculptures are informed by the juncture of art and the economy. The artist has resided in the downtown core of Victoria for thirty years and is witness to the developmental changes that continue to occur at a rapid pace. As the architecture increases in verticality so does the cost of living. Shepherd provides the viewer with multiple modes to interpret his work by appropriating the credit card form as a method to build subject matter in both his paintings and sculpture.

The House of Credit Cards paintings, 3d printed Credit Card Condos and recycled plexiglass Mini High-rise sculptures in this upcoming exhibition, speak metaphorically to the surge in the cost of living in Victoria as well as other Canadian cities. Homeowners often endure a relationship with some form of credit. These works also allude to the shift in value that occurs upon the sale of a work of art. Just as the delicate card structure in each painting is tiered so is the art market and the high-rise Shepherd resides in.
