Surface Gallery - Michael Powell Exhibition

Checked out a really interesting exhibition of the work of Michael Powell at the Surface Gallery recently.

BFTF was particularly glad to see these paintings as a counter to pretentiousness being strong in a number of Nottingham's other galleries that day....

Michael's paintings ranged in size A4 scale up to wall sized and were quite mesmerising. BFTF was really impressed by the way Michael had managed to make the tones transition subtly from one colour to another. As BFTF's eyes moved across the paintings the colours would sometimes hit a "trigger colour" that caused a long lost memory to surface - a particular shade of crayola crayon perhaps; or the characteristics colour of a fruit maybe...
