COOL HUNTING

tropolism7.10.06.jpg

Rekindling dormant grade and grad school fantasies at Tropolism today, Brooklyn-based artist John Powers' geometric sculptures, installations, drawings, and paintings reference fine art, pop culture, and his own obsessively imagined, completely fantastical worlds. Triggering deep childhood fantasies of "landscapes like the surface of the Death Star in Episode IV: A New Hope," as well as memories of architecture models, Tropolism picks the Sci-Fi Wahabi #1 (pictured) and Voluntaries #23a for its white scaffolding that's reminscent of Sol LeWitt.
