Steven Shearer


This catalogue documents Steven Shearer's 2007 exhibitions at Ikon Gallery in Birmingham and The Power Plant, on view from 1 December, 2007 - 10 February, 2008. The catalogue includes colour illustrations of Shearer's range of production – from posters to paintings, sculpture to text poems, ballpoint drawings to vast collected imagery. Essays by curators Nigel Prince and Helena Reckitt, and Nancy Tousley contextualize Shearer’s expansive range of production, which is drawn from material that he collects in his extensive image bank or archive. Comprising some 36,000 JPEGs, clippings, Xeroxes, reproductions, and found snapshots, the archive is organized into eccentric categories such as1970's teen idols, Black/Death Metal bands and children's play structures.
