Gordon Shepherdson: Ocean of Eyes



Gordon Shepherdson: Ocean of Eyes celebrates the work of late Brisbane-based artist, Gordon Shepherdson (1934 – 2019). Renowned for his expressionist paintings, Shepherdson’s subjects are often set against dark, deep backgrounds that enrich the haunting quality of his work. Influenced by his affinity with nature, Shepherdson draws upon the poetic possibilities of the passage of tides, winds and seasons to speak of humanity’s journey through life. Having spent significant time on Redlands Coast, Gordon Shepherdson: Ocean of Eyes explores the artist’s intimate understanding of the geography, skies, and animals of the local area and their influence on his wider practice.

This exhibition is presented in partnership with Philip Bacon Galleries, Nathan Shepherdson and Bruce Heiser.

A publication has been produced to accompany this survey exhibition.

Featuring writing by Bruce Heiser, Nathan Shepherdson, Louise Martin-Chew, and David Burnett, this publication provides a rich and comprehensive insight into Shepherdson’s career. This publication has been edited by Bec McCoan, Cheryl Gray and Kylie Spear.
