Excavating The Past: Michael Shepherd, Artist
Author(s): Claudia Bell
In the paintings of Michael Shepherd we can see a powerful link with the story of his life so far.
The ideas in his work are inextricably connected to the history of his own family, to events in the region in which he grew up, and to bigger issues concerning his own country of New Zealand and British imperialism.
The way Michael works with these strands and their juxtaposition makes for a fascinating story.
