"Shead is an artist, who subscribes to what is now an unfashionable theory of that the artist is a medium who surrenders to his Muse...
As in all of Shead's series there is a quiet and lyrical celebration of beauty and creativity, which somehow, against all odds survives within a materialistic world."
Professor Sasha GrishinExtract from 2006 exhibition catalogue
