Chris Shepherd

UPCOMING EXHIBITION: After Poetry 
March 2-23, 2024
Bau-Xi Gallery | Dufferin
1384 Dufferin Street, Toronto

Toronto-based artist Chris Shepherd uses the medium of photography to document the ever-changing urban landscape. Best known for his Subway series, his approach is directed by composition, colour, and form and is largely influenced by contemporary architecture, painting, and sculpture. For the past decade, Shepherd has focused on capturing urban and pedestrian life in isolated moments of tranquillity. Empty subway platforms, vacant storefronts, forgotten industrial spaces, or simply the abandoned nooks and crannies of ordinary spaces all become subjects of interest.

Shepherd's distinctive street photography has more recently been complemented by studio work that continues to explore composition, colour, and form while simultaneously experimenting with the art of photography and the physical photograph as an object.

Shepherd’s work has been exhibited across North America and is included in major corporate collections in Canada. Most recently a number of his works were acquired by the HBC Global Art Collection in New York.

My Skin Takes The Light
I Let The Days Enter Me
We Move In And Out Of Rooms, Leaving / Our Dust, Our Voices Pooled On Sills
I Spend A Lot Of Time Waiting Around For Something / Wonderful To Happen
We Have Broken The Future Of Thunder
Even Now This Landscape Is Assembling
Everything Loose / Is Travelling
Everything. / Everything / Overtakes Me Eventually
Your Confidence / Your Out Spoken Queerness
Mindful To Forget / Everything
What Strange Wolves / We’ve Welcomed To Our Waltz
There Is Eternity / But It Ends Soon
This Too Is Excess
In Whose Sprawled Out Body / Did I Make My Home
The Past Is Still. The Future Trembles
