John Powers presents a new series. John who is known for his work in relation to the cube and provides the viewer with what is essentially domestic objects abstracted Sofas covered in white damask then covered in plastic circa 1960s - just like grandmas house pillows, ottomans and rugs, That are fully abstracted, taking off in different directions pushing, pulling, precariously standing on edge yet holding their own as not quite discernable objects. To that effect the viewer encounters each object with unquestionable curiosity, a bit of amazement and a touch of wit.
