Steve Powers in Brussels

steve-powers-happy-monday

Steve Powers latest show, Semaphores of the Soul, opens tomorrow night at Alice (Artists Living in Constant Elevation) Gallery in Brussels, Belgium.  Showcasing some of his best work from the past seven years, “Powers has created a new way of painting, a hybrid of text and image that functions as a screen shot of his mind.”

We’re especially partial to the rendering of Bez from the Happy Mondays in the center of the drawing above.

Exhibition Dates: 29.01 2009 > 07.03.2009

VERNISSAGE: Thursday 29.01 2009 – 18:00 to 22:00

Not to be missed.  More info here.

Donald Wilson Roller is a well connected artist. For example, his artist statement was written by Robin Williams and the intro to the site by Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher. Regardless of who his friends are, his work is interesting.
