A Universal Picture

By Shelby Shadwell

Shadwell made this piece for the opening reception of Divergence of Light on August 23, 2016. Shadwell’s work was featured in this show, in addition to Davanna Wilkins “breathing sculptures.”
The piece featured cockroaches, used diapers, and trash bags, exploring the contrast between light and dark, attraction and repulsion, and representation and abstraction. Shadwell disrupts the hierarchy in art by elevating subjects usually hidden from view.
Additionally, Shadwell is an associate professor of Drawing at the University of Wyoming in Laramie.
