John Power’s Installations

John Powers creates sculptures, installations, drawings, and even maintains a blog Star Wars Modern, where he writes posts like “Pat Robertson is a Sith” and “The Urbanism of Superheroes”. In all John’s work, however, there’s a distinct sense of structure and a meticulous process that seems to be at play, a mix of machine and man. His large-scale sculptures and installations, for instance, are usually constructed from thousands of individuals pieces—sometimes polystyrene blocks, sometimes painted wood—into a tightly-formed, exactly-angled pattern or lined up all in a row like soldiers going to battle. Extremely intricate in everything he creates, John’s work brings together a perfect balance between the art movements of post-minimalism and abstract expressionism, and modern pop culture icons like Star Wars.
