Gerald Shepherd: A Modern Odyssey

I completed this work in 1989 using acrylic on canvas.  It was one of a pair and combined a board game background with an evolving image strand (archetypal me in fact as I have used this format off and on for almost forty years).  The starting and ending images come from Cezanne’s A Modern Olympia with a developing sequence of surreal images in between.  The background text uses characters and events from Homer’s Odyssey.
