SHAWN POWELL
CABIN FEVER
SEPTEMBER 2 – NOVEMBER 23

RECEPTION SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 3:00 – 5:00 pm

Exploring the historical conceit of painting as a metaphorical window, Powell focuses on the experience of containment. When trapped in a room, what images does one idealize? He offers up elements of escape and obstructs these subjects with bold colorful lines or “blinds,” creating feelings of lost hope and suppression, all the while forming a veil or curtain over these painted “windows”. In each work, geometric abstraction and realistic depictions synthesize moments of distinction and blurring, denying the viewer a complete grasp of either.
