Opening September 10 at Galleria Patricia Armocida, Milan, Separating Light from Dark is the first italian solo exhibition from artist, Steve Powers aka ESPO. Having participated in the 49th Venice Biennale in 2001, Powers is back and exhibiting his most recent work including the debut of 25 enamel on aluminum paintings and the series 8 Week Paintings from his solo exhibition at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia in 2007.
Reminiscent of the graphic esthetics of 1950s hand-painted advertising signs – Separating Light from Dark combines these familiar aesthetics with the obvious biblical reference and conversely, the desperately mundane act of separating whites from blacks when doing laundry.
