"His art is one of enduring and recurring themes, absorbed in a brooding and turbulent romanticism the origins of which are in many respects, traditional. It is possible to see Shepherdson's vision as having a foundation in a nineteenth century genre of nature as catastrophe - a threatening and shapeless world, allowing only for an uneasy balance between man and his environment, a conditional reconciliation fraught with uncertainty. It is the timelessness of Shepherdosn's imagination that makes his landscapes so relevant for today."
