About the Work
This series of works created by Kate Shepherd for Exhibition A was started during Hurricane Sandy when the artist had no electricity and was unable to get to her studio. They are based on the geometric “tram” structures used to analyze old master paintings—a discipline she learned in Paris while studying color and composition. Here she tilts a subdivided plane putting geometry in motion, and then further suggests depth with watercolor.
Kate Shepherd has held solo exhibitions at Josh Pazda Hiram Butler (Houston), Galerie Lelong (New York), Krakow Witkin Gallery (Boston), Bill Brady Gallery (Miami), 56 Henry (New York), Anthony Meier Fine Arts (San Francisco) and Pace Prints, among others. Shepherd’s paintings, prints and silkscreens are in collections of major museums including LACMA, MFA Houston and Boston, The Phillips Collection, The Menil Collection, and Albright-Knox Art Gallery. Shepherd's has a longstanding commitment to printmaking and has created editions with Pace Prints, Lower East Side Printshop, Dieu Donné, The Chinati Foundation, and Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture. She has also self-published four editions of monotypes. She is represented by Galerie Lelong & Co, Anthony Meier Fine Arts, Hiram Butler Gallery, and Krakow Witkin Gallery. She lives and works in New York, NY.
Authentication & Resale
This work is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed and numbered by the artist.
Be sure to keep your Certificate of Authenticity (COA) in a safe place. We are unable to replace or reissue COAs.
Framed artwork is custom framed once it is ordered. Allow 3-5 weeks for framing and delivery.
All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Any artwork that is floated will be placed in a frame that has a ⅝” wide flat face and is 1 5/16” deep. Work will be floated with a 1” border around it.
