Spotted, 36″x24″, Acrylic on cut canvas, 2011
This week on Art Uncovered: Brooklyn-based painter Jamie Powell. In her paintings Jamie takes advantage of everything her canvas has to offer, painting on both the front and back sides and then cutting into the canvases to expose colored strips of canvas that would usually be facing the wall. The results are playful abstractions inspired by the colors of cartoons and sugary children’s breakfast cereals.
Jamie has shown her work at FLUXspace in Philadelphia, the 92nd St Y in New York, Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, and Seton Hall Law School in Newark.
