One writer described Shadoe’s work as “Illumination of Spirit,” a 21st Century William Blake. Merging familiar forms with optical illusions, the multi-media work explores metaphysical conundrums
with intricate and abstract images, shapes, and perspective to create explosive visual statements in richly saturated colors. These impossible constructions are designed to create contradictions that
engage the mind with three dimensional illusions on two dimensional planes. This forced perspective is an attempt to reveal that visual input may contain hidden information or have no meaning at all,
and it’s what we do with the information that may or may not exist, that give it meaning. States of mind and the contemplation of Spiritual revelations are expressed in radiant compositions,
abstract realism, self-indulgent word play, and humor. This is humor so subtle, it may not be considered humor at all. If a smile or laugh emerges later for no apparent reason,
"MARILYN IN HEAVEN"
