Catalogue Note

“Shearer consistently returns to the found imagery he collects to use as the subject matter of his collage works, which incorporate images lifted from various fan magazines as well as from the web. These references often reflect not only his own personal experience of growing up in the suburbs of Vancouver, but also a collective memory of the visual and verbal landscape of suburban and teenage alienation. The subject of Shearer’s collage works have ranged from metal heads to teen heartthrobs to prefabricated tool sheds” (Press Release, Greenwich, Brant Foundation, Steven Shearer, November 2016, online).
