David Shepherd : Exhibition of recent work.
The images on show are raw on paper, and relate to David’s sculpture/installation archival process.
The inspiration to show a selection of my recent collages interrelated with my photographs and degraded photocopied images comes directly from several visits to spacetocreate.
spacetocreate’s drop in courses working with both children and adults, often using collage/construction techniques, demonstrates a fluidity and simple dynamic that fits in with these aspects of my research.
I feel very comfortable profiling what is very often a private activity at spacetocreate !
David Shepherd formerly Head of Media Art and Performance within the BA (Hons) Fine Art Course at the University of Wales Institute Cardiff – now Cardiff Metropolitan University.
David Shepherd was born in Wigan, Lancashire. Studied at Wigan School of Art and Goldsmiths’ College London.
He has shown work in the UK and many venues across the world.
Shepherd works in many mediums but the majority of his work tends to be in time based / sculptural / installation formats,
“Shepherd’s work conveys ideas of improvisation – knocking together – fixing up and making do with available materials – the laborious, repetitive, sometimes pointless production of an endless process through which we construct our world and thus ourselves.” Carol McKay
David will discuss the work in this show alongside images of previous work, which is largely of a time based / sculptural / installation format, at the next meet : cwrdd informal gathering for artists makers and creative practitioners on Friday 8 February. at spacetocreate from 6 – 8pm.
