On Tuesday, July 29, 2020, the artist Kate Shepherd and Mary Sabbatino discussed selected works from the past two decades as well as the artist's current show entitled "Surveillance."
The second in "Galerie Lelong Conversations," they charted Shepherd's journey over the last two decades; from her delicate line work to the current body of work that establishes a spatial discourse across the panel, the viewer, and the gallery space.
Shepherd and Sabbatino will discuss selected works from the past two decades as well as her current show entitled Surveillance. The exhibition opened on March 12 and has been extended through Thursday, August 6, 2020. Visitors are welcome to schedule appointments on our website to view the exhibition in the gallery from Tuesday through Thursday. Since its opening, the presentation has also been updated with two new paintings.
Known for her richly colored paintings built with layers of monochromatic enamel, Shepherd here charts new territory in her decades-long exploration of perspectival space. Chief among Shepherd’s concerns in these works is their relationship to their environs; the various reflective surfaces establish a spatial discourse across the panel, the viewer, and the gallery space.
