Steve Shepard’s Visionary Bayou Technician, in the words of the artist, “speak(s) a visionary language of deep ecology inspired by the natural history of the northern Gulf of Mexico and its disintegration at the hands of developers investing in sprawling overpopulation and exploitation.” The artist includes among his influences the art of Walter Anderson, the Post-Impressionists, and the Chicago Imagists. Steve Shepard’s education includes a BFA from the University of South Alabama in 1977, and a summer at the Santa Fe Workshops of Contemporary Art in 1976.
