Art21 Features Steven Shearer in
Painter/Protagonist: Steven Shearer at The Brant Foundation
by Lee Plested
Painter/Protagonist: Steven Shearer at The Brant Foundation – Lee Plested reflects on Shearer’s current exhibition, which features works spanning the artist’s 20 year career.
“This in-depth plunge into Shearer’s world of long-hair miscreants spans twenty years of the artist’s production. Organized largely from Peter Brant’s collection, important additional loans and preparatory sketches were brought in to realize a show that foregrounds Shearer’s cumulative processes. Here, Steven Shearer exposes his Vancouver roots; a city that has distinguished itself through researched-based artists interested in notions of history, who actualize materially sophisticated works of art.”
