Brian Shields

Brian Shields is a multimedia artist - painting, sculpture, etching and film. The paintings shown explore the lives (real and imagined) of the English nature poet John Clare and the artist and visionary William Blake.

The graphite drawing – ‘Icarian Dreamings’ was a direct response to the BLM movement and ongoing refugee crisis - A call for the emancipation of all ethnicities. In the work, a lone figure with feathered harness stands restrained in boxlike room, yearning for freedom, envisaging escape; a flight, to a new life.

We will be adding this collection very soon.
