The Stuart Shepherd Archives
A selection of art and objects from my collection as an Artist / Curator. Things that have attracted me over the years.
This is a selected studio sale … I’m cleaning out my closet. Some pieces will be available for sale, some pieces will simply be for show, because I’m still too attached and can’t face the separation!
CAUTION – UNDER CONSTRUCTION
Some items may fall off the page at any time.
I marvel at the work of particular self- taught artists and have been inspired by the original creative spirit of their work.
I know Im not alone in feeling that the work of trained artists often feels so “culturally digested” that it loses any essential flavour.
I will show some of my favourite pieces that I consider to be … tasty.
A Revolving Feature Wall
Where I get to display stuff (treasure) I have carted around with me forever.
I have also collected objects that might be considered folksy or kitsch, things that delight me, things that make me smile.
Things that probably inform the sculptural and painterly stuff I make.
Including some of the hundreds of life drawing studies I have produced.
I have always been challenged by life drawing, and the effort to capture the attitude of a pose, and the character of hands and feet as indicators of that pose.
I admire anyone who can draw really well and get hands.

Thanks to Brian the Lion for encouraging me to put work up on this wall. Also thanks to curator/collector John Perry whose passion and whose brilliant collection was an inspiration, and to Peter Faye collector and curator and Edward Gomez curator and writer.
