About the work
Steven Shearer
Canadian, b. 1968
Follow

Known for his melancholic portraiture and socially insightful photo collage works, Steven Shearer sheds an ironic and critical light on youth culture. In Owls Butterflies Corpsepaint (2002), for example, he juxtaposes pictures of punk rock musicians and concertgoers against several images of owls, animals associated with wisdom and vigilance. Shearer’s work is often anthropologically oriented and has been described as a representation of cultural detritus. In his pastel and painted portraits, Shearer depicts his subjects in a curvilinear style recalling that of Edvard Munch and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
