exhibits - Stephen Rolfe Powell - Solo Exhibition - November 10 - December 31, 2007

"There's something vaguely miraculous that some of the finest work in contemporary color in any medium is being wrought right now by Stephen Rolfe Powell at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky. There's no reason why that shouldn't be true, of course; Paris and New York and Tokyo and Chicago have no patent on artistic creativity. Colorists, it has been observed, are born, not made, and their pursuit of subtlety and beauty, their search for that special kind of optical exhilaration that begins where language ends and taste begins, can happen anywhere. Our role is to appreciate that it is happening at all, that something quickens the attention of an artist like Stephen Rolfe Powell, making him lay out endless rows of murrini, manipulate molten glass, and twirl and coax it into form, creating sumptuous vortices of tone and color that astound and delight, and that celebrate the infinite and affirmative pleasures of human vision."
