Shepherd’s Mount Fuji captures the hallowed summit filtered through a crisp, blue light. The balanced behemoth seems to float upward atop sweeping brushstrokes of morning mist, but is kept grounded by hazy pink horizon light seeping over its slopes. While the shadows and snowpaths of the craggy terrain are sharply defined, the surrounding sky and atmospheric accents are loose and ethereal. The image exudes harmony—a constant push and pull of elements that results in peaceful, pleasing stillness.
All these treatments emphasize Mount Fuji’s positive power. Shepherd’s long been interested in exploring the nature of evil through his work, and in a natural progression, possible solutions to “overwhelming forces of negative energy.” His Holy Mountain series—including his earlier edition, Machu Picchu—approaches this same ongoing exploration by focusing on mountains with profound spiritual or cultural significance. What do these powerful entities have in common? How does their portraitization deepen our understanding of each?
