Historical Context:
Shanna Shearer is an active artist living in Michigan and working at Ox-Bow School of Art. "It is my fascination with the human condition that motivates these paintings. This fascination is communicated through a visual narrative that reveals psychological qualities of the figures. The intention is to engage the viewer through human elements present in the paintings, creating an intimacy between the subjects and the viewer.“ -Shanna Shearer
