Steve Powers – Visual Blues
New York based artist Stephen Powers, better known as ESPO in the art world, is set to open a solo exhibition at Alice Gallery in Brussels. The show will feature several pictures from Powers’ already classic body of work, including new renditions of pieces from his ‘Metaltations’ series. Steve himself said about the body of work on show tonight.. Im in awe of the power and the reach of music. To compete with the majesty of music, I make paintings that are visual blues. I distill my everyday experience into paintings I call Daily Metaltations. They are painted very fast, fresh from the epiphanies that inspired them. The larger paintings draw from those metaltations and go to a deeper understanding of the transactions we make everyday to live our lives.
