We are delighted to be exhibiting “Blood & Bone” by Eve Shepherd – a wonderful collection of some of her smaller porcelain and plaster pieces as well as exhibiting her new paintings for the very first time.
Eve Shepherd’s work explores the journey of femininity, shaped and inspired by her own experiences as an artist and mother. Pulling together for the first time in her working practice, a singular an encompassing theme which captures fragility and fortitude through feminine archetypes of maiden, mother and crone. “Blood & Bone” creates a setting for Eve’ Shepherd’s sculpture to tell the story of ancient women; capturing the strength and power of strong women from the primordial ancestry of our beginnings to the complex and intricate femininity of modern day.
“Blood & Bone” showcases porcelain sculpture which seems to grow from the ground itself. Rough, gnarled clay is transformed by Eve Shepherd. Refined with delicacy and expertise each figurative sculpture evokes a haunting, ethereal quality while remaining both fleshy and visceral.
There will be a Q+A with Eve Shepherd on Monday 14th of November from 2-4pm, full details are here.
