'I suppose the androgynous nature of my figures is related to my interest in fashion, how we stylise and manner ourselves for others. It also speaks to my approach to art-making, which has never been about physical reality; it's about fantasy and release.' — Steven Schearer, 2016
David Zwirner has announced co-representation of the hyper in-demand artist Steven Shearer, in collaboration with his long-standing gallerist Eva Presenhuber. Shearer's first exhibition with David Zwirner is planned for 2023 in New York.
Working From Life, the artist's hotly-anticipated current solo exhibition at Galerie Eva Presenhuber's Zurich location, continues until 16 October. The show highlights a new iconographical direction for the artist, portraits of artist-sculptors presenting their creations, haunted by the ghosts of the greek mythological figure, Pygmalion.
