ROBERT POWELL | new work: Phantom Things, Revenant City, The Staircase and other works

5 - 26 February 2021

Robert Powell captures the complicated mass of thought, psychology and flesh we all are in labyrinthine detail. With characteristic humour and pathos, forces of history and moments of heightened conscience emerge from his highly crafted imagery. In his latest suite of works, Powell places humanity under the microscope, confronting collective inheritance, ideas of progress and human foibles in ‘The Staircase’ and suggesting re-emergence from the void in ‘The Revenant City.’ Every image possesses surgical powers of observation and generations of insight; the closer you look, the more you see.
