Admired for his ability to make powerful statements (both political and artistic) in watercolor, Alex Powers passed away peacefully on March 25, 2020. Join us as we honor his life and artistic legacy.
Using gouache, charcoal, pastel and sometimes collage on illustration board, Alex Power’s loose realism combined an emphasis on drawing with an awareness of the art of our times. “I attempt to deal with issues such as human origins, religion, philosophy, economic inequality, etc. These overwhelming issues are difficult to deal with, but they are what interest me. And, since I believe in the singularity of life and art, these issues are the content of my life and my current work,” he said.
