Collection: Peter & Madeline Powell

 It's not often that two individual artists are able to combine and express their talents to produce a single body of work.  Peter and Madeline Powell have this rare creative alliance. Essentially, painting is a solo endeavor, yet the Powell's have accomplished a seamless blend of unity in their work.
Having met on Maui in 1976, they soon started working on each others artwork and before too long, it developed into a natural way of approaching and completing a painting for them.

 


"Life's treats and play things from the past and present are what we capture in our paintings. We enjoy taking the little things out of everyday life and giving them the prominence and importance they had when we were children. Our paintings invoke the childhood spirit that everyday life has buried deep within us."


 

Peter and Madeline Powell are artists who have wed exacting technical photorealism to the sensual memories of one of childhood's most pleasurable activities: Eating candy. Not only getting it, but holding it, looking at it, and unwrapping it. The smell, touch, shape, feel, and taste of it all come strikingly through the dramatically over-sized images of Hershey Kisses, Bazooka Bubble Gum, M&M's, and lollipops, to name a few. Of course, the Powell's have covered other subjects, most
notably Crayons, toys, cars, even florals and an even occasional scenic!
But no matter the subject, the viewer is pulled into a bursting world of form and color.
