Daniel Shepherd to debut new series "Primitive" at Royse Contemporary

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Arizonar -- Royse Contemporary is thrilled to present "Primitive" the solo exhibition of Daniel Shepherd. With this new exhibition, Shepherd is exploring color, line, abstraction while incorporating new materials and concepts in an exciting and fresh way. His work evokes a raw quality focusing on color, movement, and energy with this bold and diverse new collection that includes brand new paintings, collages and mixed media works. "Primitive" refers to the primal quality of the work, Shepherd stated "these paintings and assemblages were all developed with each step forward in the evolution of my work, realizing the purest essence that lies in life's subtle nuances and simple joys."

His painting focuses on minimalism and abstraction utilizing acrylic paint on repurposed hand distressed wood panels. Shepherd's painting technique merges bright and saturated colors often colliding with bold line work and organic forms. He is also known for his vintage collages reconfiguring imagery and subjects in interesting and often unusual ways while retaining their elegance and natural beauty combined with his organic style. His new exhibition "Primitive" showcases the progression of his work with these new mixed media assemblages that fuse together his painting, collages, with the addition of unique pieces of wood creating a 3-dimensional element to the works that gives them a sculptural quality.
