Austin Sheppard: Sculptor, Technician, and Educator
Born and raised in southeast North Carolina. 6 years ago, Austin moved back to the family farm to make work, and wound up getting a job at UNC Pembroke, where he currently works as a Studio Technician and Part-Time Lecturer.
"My work straddles a line between the permanence of traditional sculpture and the impermanence of performance-based occurrences, unified by the objectified, yet malleable human body. Heavily influenced by shaman-like ritualism and pagan guising, I seek sustainability by incorporating both natural and reclaimed man-made materials. Through observation, omen-reading, and the search for the Celtic Otherworld, it is my goal to re-establish a fractured relationship with nature."
