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.
