Archive Contemporary presents a comprehensive solo exhibition of Beaver Sheppard’s artistic canon, featuring the multifaceted artist’s paintings, illustrations, and musical work in tandem.

About

As a self taught artist, Sheppard’s process is intentionally intuitive; rejecting the overtly conceptual or the overly figurative in favor of an intensely visual spontaneity. The resulting effect is what Sheppard describes as “anti-image. Destructive. Primal.” Painting with such furor allows for a deeply human experience of creation, in all its madness and imperfection. “Overall, I’m just trying to make things that computers won’t be able to do. I think about this often. I paint to release. I paint because I have to. I paint to inspire others. I owe it to my parents to channel  the gift of freedom they bestowed, they gave me a brain full of bewilderment, Maybe someday I will develop thoughts through painting that can save the world. I paint to understand. I paint to remember."
