This painting depicts a largely obscured figure with heel-clad feet stepping in a shallow pool of water. One foot lies under a stream of water coming from an unknown source. The artist's paintings are inspired by her longtime engagement with niche online fetish communities, and frequently reference hidden worlds that exist in plain sight. Shepherd's compositions speak to the absurdity of our time while exploring the opposing extremes of desire—such as soiling oneself in mud or the need for extreme sanitation.
