This week I’m joined by Brooklyn-based painter Jamie Powell. Her paintings are playful abstractions infused with the color palates and high-energy of saturday morning cartoons and sugary childrens breakfast cereals. Along with the eye-popping colors in her work, Jamie also cuts into her canvases leaving holes and geometric shapes that some times resemble a pair of eyes, shattered glass or teeth.
Jamie is currently part of a group show called Geometry Poems, up now at Janet Kurnatowsky Gallery in Greenpoint. A while back I talked to Jamie about her work, her love for 80s cartoons and why she decided to start cutting holes in her paintings.
Get stuck between the present and the past with this sweet and powerful song. | read
