Rudy Shepherd Everything in the Universe is My Brother
February 11, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Rudy Shepherd’s solo exhibition features several bodies of work that are part of the
artist’s ongoing investigation into the nature of evil. His portrait series depict the faces of
criminals and victims of crime. Making no visual distinctions between the two, the artist
explores the complexity of their stories and the gray areas between innocence and guilt.
In this way, Trayvon Martin, Kim Jong-un, Heather Heyer, and Steve Bannon are all
depicted in the group. By presenting the individuals first and their stories second,
Shepherd attempts to create a space for humanity to be reinserted into the lives of
people who have been reduced to mere headlines in the press
