More information about this artwork

Sue Coen is an English artist and illustrator mostly known for the highly political and activist approach of her practice. Her body of work often depicts intensely graphic imagery, portraying victimized and oppressed subjects in harsh environments such as factory farming, prisons, and most recently, war. Coen’s fervent advocacy of animal rights is a hallmark of her artistic expression.

Where's the Good Shepherd? features an anguishing black-and-white scene of intensive animal factory farming. Coen makes the cruelty and oppression, suffered by the herd of suffocated and savagely packed sheep, palpable through the astonishing texture of the etching. The artist’s strong connection to animal rights can be traced back to her maturing years as she grew up near a slaughterhouse. Sue Coen is a highly admired artist and activist, currently represented by many galleries and institutions.
