Greetings

Hello, I am a professional artist currently living and working in Southern England. I sell through galleries but I am also happy to work to commission.

I would be pleased to collaborate on joint projects with fellow artists or collectively organise and participate in group exhibitions.

I am open to work with artists, writers and other creators on a mutual assistance basis.


Bonjour, je suis un artiste professionnel vivant et travaillant actuellement dans le sud de l'Angleterre. Je vends par le biais de galeries mais je suis également heureux de travailler sur commande.
Je serais ravi de collaborer à des projets communs avec d'autres artistes ou d'organiser et de participer collectivement à des expositions de groupe.
Je suis ouvert à travailler avec des artistes, écrivains et autres créateurs sur une base d'entraide.

Gerald Shepherd F.F.P.S.

Gerald Shepherd is a painter, graphic artist, sculptor, digital/multimedia artist, photographer, writer, curator and arts administrator.  He has also been involved with science art, performance art, conceptual art, installations and environments (as well as peripheral creative pursuits such as garden design).


He won awards while still at school and also had his first theatre piece performed at this time.  However he is largely self taught and right from the outset of his career in the early Seventies has employed extremely novel approaches to picture making; often using mathematics or scientific models to process image sequences across an extended picture plane.  He subsequently explored the use of musical formats like sonata and theme and variation forms to sequentially develop images and ideas as well combining visual art with his theatrical and literary interests to create new forms of narrative painting.  Gerald Shepherd coined the term Ionist Art in 1976 to cover this work and then began to use the more descriptive term of Meditative Process Art in the early Eighties.  He has continued to experiment with evolving and elaborative structures to the present day.


At the end of the last Century the artist began an extended series of landscape and portrait paintings which combine observation with the sequential and developmental formats of his earlier pieces.  These pictures are holistic and multi layered portrayals of people and the natural world using symbols, signs and abstracted figurative images to present a broad spectrum of ideas and information associated with the subject matter.  He also produces entirely conventional paintings and drawings, initially to commission but now only for relaxation.


Gerald Shepherd's early work in the Seventies was extremely experimental using a wide range of materials not normally associated with art making.  He then worked in pencil and acrylic medium for some time before working almost exclusively in oils, acrylic and related media. At the beginning of this decade he resumed his childhood passion for photography and also began to experiment extensively with digital art and multimedia.


Gerald Shepherd founded the pioneering Ionist Art Group in 1987 for anyone who shared his multidisciplinary interests.  The large membership came from all the sciences and right across the arts.  He edited an art-science fusion newsletter entitled “The Ion Exchange” and arranged regular meetings for artists and scientists to exchange ideas and explore collaborative projects throughout the late Eighties and early Nineties.  The artist then moved on to organising exhibitions and art events to campaign on animal welfare and wildlife conservation issues; these activities being the  main focus of his curatorial interests for the remainder of the decade.


On a personal level Gerald Shepherd has Asperger Syndrome which has had a significant impact on the promotion and development of his artistic career. He is passionately interested in animal welfare and wildlife conservation and his political views lean heavily to the left. His other interests include physics and chemistry, zoology and botany, archaeology, history, geography, mythology, music and horticulture.
