EXPO CHICAGO ONLINE 

8 - 12 April 2021

Anthony Meier Fine Arts is pleased to present a selection of Protest Posters by New York-based artist, Kate Shepherd

Kate Shepherd explores formal relationships in her paintings, prints, and screenprints, combining a pared-down minimalist style with humanism, via the artist’s hand. Her imagery derives from computer-manipulated patterns and architectural prototypes, however, she renders the lines by hand, bringing a human element to otherwise pristine forms and colors.

Shepherd’s Protest Poster series began in 2007. Seeking a way to work as efficiently as possible while on press, the artist only shot one screen. To create myriad permutations of shape and color, Shepherd flipped the page and shifted the paper up and down between runs.

“I often picked from a wall of inks left at the print shop from other artists and re-tinted them to my needs. Colors were extended with base medium to add transparency so that secondary and tertiary hues could emerge. The self-imposed rules of the project changed with each 'edition' of the print; however, the one constant was that no two prints would ever be the same,” Shepherd states.

The artist titled the works Protest Posters for their vertical proportions but also with the idea that these color studies carry an emotional impact. Shepherd's recent series, Nina Simone Sings Pirate Jenny, is made to illustrate stark shifts—both with the strong contrasts of layers and the title that harkens to a powerful song performed from two points of view.
