About


 

Shane Pierce is the creator of NOMADS.

 

     Evan Senn - "Traveling all over the United States, carrying with him his own personal baggage of memories and experiences, he paints a different world into existence. Dark and ominous creatures, emotional weight, honesty and experience ring loudly throughout his paintings. Dark traveling characters bombard his imagination and his artwork, angels and grim reapers haunt his creations in subtle ways, while the rough and raw American landscape keep his nomads company on their seemingly lonesome and aimless journeys. His artwork is as unique and haunting as he is. A storyteller at his core, his creations are hypnotic, drawing the viewer in and plaguing them with interest and intrigue. A cloaked man, with determination and fury across his brow, often paired with a suitcase and a pipe, ventures to the dark and unknown places of his imagination. Constantly followed by the shadows, Pierce’s nomads travel with fervor, unafraid of what lies ahead, or behind them."

 

 I paint for books, comics, galleries, games, and creator owned projects.

     Deianira Tolema - "As for the artist’s figurative subjects, whose moving surroundings change shape as they breathe, they are just as provocative yet elusive as Boldini’s female characters according to Dwight MacDonald, indeed, the winding trend of their facial traits, hard to pin to the surface, exudes pain and angst when left undefined; the uncertainty of their emotional states juxtaposed to anatomical detail evokes Pierce’s obsession with non-academic technical virtuosity. In the work, “Nomadic Nights,” everything is on fire, and the viewers are invited to tell the difference between whatever is left of humanity according to the artist, and the layers of paint resembling skies as thick as baroque draperies that appear to have a life of their own; a train has stopped in the middle of a desert at night, and the only survivors are two zombies wearing anonymous clothes and dragging their own dead bodies around with contempt – these men’s only companions are the eternal fog they were born out of, and their soul-carrying, leather suitcases."
