Michigan Artist Series Tim Powers: Below the Surface May 29 – August 17, 2014
Below the Surface displays the evolution of Tim Powers’ working practice with different materials and his understanding of their hidden potential. The exhibition features a large-scale installation, spanning two entire walls, of over 400 of his pillow forms, along with several other experimental sculptures, including one that glows and responds to movement in the gallery. Powers’ curiosity and respect for the unique qualities of the materials with which he works make this exhibition compelling, leaving us wondering what other mysteries lie where we cannot see.
Powers received his MFA from the Art Institute of Boston in 2011, with a focus in Object Making. He has served as an art and design educator at Ferris State University and Grand Valley State University, and manages a freelance design practice in addition to his sculptural studio work.
