John Powers

John Powers – american architect, co-curator of the non-profit art project Omi International Arts Centre.

John Powers is author of sculptures, installations and architectural objects which are inspired by methods of post-painting abstraction, post-minimalism and mass culture. Meticulous and precisely built, his abstract geometrical constructions push the limits of formal artistic language. His specific object appear to be a result of cold and precise computed calculation, but in repeated addition of forms-blocks one may clearly see the intention of a person- creator. His large-scale installation often consist of thousands of separate, tightly intertwisted blocks of polystyrene or wood which resemble rows of soldiers marching against the aim.

Specially for the Festival of new culture Art-Ovrag 2012 John Powers has created the sculpture “Big Gini”:
