A solo exhibition by Rudy Shepherd. The show will include a new series of photographs, a life-sized cave and a new video.

Upon entering the gallery, the viewer will be confronted by a large, white cloud cave floating in a blue sky. Surrounding the cave will be a series of 40” x 40” photographs entitled Ursa Major Contemplating the Meaning of the Universe. Through music emanating from the cave, the viewer is lured inside to sit with a video monitor. Both the video and the accompanying photographs inspire conversations related to identity, fatherhood, and home. It becomes apparent that it is not the outward costume that is scary, but the potential and mysterious nature of the individual within the disguise.
