Eve Shepherd's 'Odyssey'

“This body of work made up some 25 years and depicts an epic creative voyage, my Odyssey”

The 508 Gallery have teamed up with Farnon & Lake to bring you an exciting and adventurous exhibition of world class sculptures by Eve Shepherd.

The small scale of the work offers a freedom and expression, untethered by the rigid, immovable armature of a full scaled sculpture. Eve then sculpts intuitively playing with the concepts, emotions and narratives inspired by an immediate response to the material, form and mood. These pieces then invite the individual to connect with them, offering an intimate interplay between viewer and sculpture. When these maquettes are scaled up to life-size and beyond the power of the work is often amplified to speak not only to the individual but also to an arena.

In Eves Odyssey, the maquette and material has served steadfastly as a life raft, an anchor, a battleship, a drifter, an explorer through this epic expedition of a life lived so far.
