“These images are inspired by Vietnam War protesters who would put flowers in the gun barrels of the National Guard who were brought in to suppress their protests for peace. I’m a pacifist, whether that means finding diplomatic solutions to prevent and avoid war internationally or finding diplomatic solutions to prevent and avoid gun violence at home. I’m not anti- Second Amendment, so trolls can calm down… I’m not interested in macho blathering, I just want fewer people to die unnecessarily. Brady United is doing good work preventing gun violence so they will receive a portion of proceeds from these two prints. Thanks for caring” Shepard stated.

“I made this painting at the beginning of lockdown, when images were circulating of people wearing bottles on their heads and other makeshift masks, and even full bodysuits. There was an eccentric sense of hysteria in the air and I wanted to picture that. As the image is remade today for this print, that madness has already settled into the mundane, so it captures a very particular moment. That’s one of the reasons it’s the only painting that I own” said the artist.
Oli Epp is an artist based in London. Deformed, quirky and exuberant figures inhabit his artworks, often staged within theatrical settings. Easy to read at first glance, these hyper-dramatised characters reflect upon our complex relationship to technology and social media.

“When LA locked down with shelter in place orders, later leading to complete beach closures, I found myself constantly having surf dreams. Surfing is by design social distancing and the fact that the state made it illegal was absurd to me. I became more obsessed than ever with checking the live surf cams of completely empty beaches and waves. I started following all of new swell moving into the LA area, knowing that it would fall on vacant shores. ‘A Clean Break’ grew out of that obsession.”
