My florist is a dick

I’m over in Berlin, and I was asked if my Sadistic Florist image is an SS soldier. No, it is NOT an SS uniform. It is a Washington DC riot police uniform. I guess the power of suggestion has shown itself here in Berlin. Unfortunately, there have been many deaths at the hands of the police historically and in recent months in the US. The police are frequently portrayed as “peace keepers” which is why I have the humorous flowers in the image. Over 5,000 civilians have died at the hands of the police in the U.S. since 9/11. That is far more than have been killed by terrorists… including 9/11. Check out this article by Katie Rucke. We need police to wear body-cameras, not more electronic data collection from ordinary citizens.

GIVING UP ON PRESIDENT OBAMA

Included below is an e-mail exchange between Mr. Bradley Carlson of Miami, Florida.  Mr. Carlson reached out to Shepard to share his viewpoints and concern with how Shepard’s recent commentary about President Obama could and has been taken out of context and used for the benefit of the Republican rhetoric.

We believe this is a healthy discussion and with a considerable amount of attention on the subject matter, felt it compelling to share publicly.  Please take a moment to read this.  Thanks Brad for your thoughtful dialogue.

DETROIT RE-VISITED – VIDEO & VIRTUAL GALLERY TOUR

Art has the ability to effect the heart through the eyes first, and then the head will follow. I’m always hoping that every piece that I do will make a difference, effect how people think about an issue, potentially become a banner for a cause, and that is very ambitious but what’s the point of doing it at all if I’m not going for it.

I had a great experience working with Library Street Collective in Detroit for my exhibition “Printed Matters.” It was such an amazing experience to be able to create a 185-foot mural, do street installations at The BELT, and have a gallery show with them. Check out this really well done video which I think encapsulates the whole experience. There are also links to be able to do a virtual tour of the show up in their two galleries which is pretty cool.

Thanks for your support!

– Shepard

Also, I wanted to share the 3D models of the exhibition in each space. Take a look:
