Christy Powers, She Gets It From Her Mommas

BRAVE FINE ART
American artist, Christy Powers, draws upon references in old family photographs to create modern figurative works that reflect popular culture.

"I try to create paintings that reflect that unattainable dream like quality of our memories. I have inherited thousands of family photographs, my family was in the photo engraving and processing business for over 75 years.

"Going through them I've been amazed by the common themes and imagery that I've used in my own work."

Christy Powers was born and raised in New York. She received a BA at Sarah Lawrence College and then went on to earn an MA with distinction from the College of Fine Arts at the University of New South Wales in 2007.

Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at the Bronx Museum, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Queen Victoria Museum, Giacobetti Paul Gallery, White Box, GPG Auvergne, Brick Lane Gallery, Madarts Gallery, Here Art, A*Space, Kudos Gallery, and COFAspace. She has participated in residencies at ILIRI in the Australian Outback as well as the AIM program at the Bronx Museum.
