About the piece

Fascinated by Savannah’s iconic and beloved Spanish moss, Nettles Powers’ imagery is a culmination of numerous years of examinations and experimentation with this profuse flowering plant. Using a restrained palette, she successfully conveys the animate quality of Spanish moss, forcing viewers to see this ubiquitous organic material from a fresh perspective. Drenched with india ink, moss is folded into sheets of unprimed canvas. The moss is discarded and the ink process repeated until a desired effect is achieved. Employing a poetic distortion of the media, Nettles Powers removes Savannah’s iconic plant from its familiar vertical pose, strung like frazzled tinsel on the limbs of live oaks.

Kim-Foster Gallery



"Kim Foster opened her contemporary art gallery in 1994 in Soho and was among the first to migrate to the Chelsea art district where the the Kim Foster Gallery has occupied the ground floor space in the 529 West 20th Arts Building since 1998.

The gallery has a reputation for exhibiting thoughtful works that are intellectually challenging while maintaining a raw visual appeal. Although there is a great variety in the work of Kim Foster Gallery’s artists, there also is an elegance to her exhibitions that exemplifies the gallery’s aesthetic. That elegance permeates Foster’s affinity for obsessive and eccentric painting, sculpture and drawing built from an assemblage of often minutely constructed parts.

Kim Foster’s vision is focused on enabling her artists to explore and evolve in their extraordinarily different ways, but with remarkable coherence within the gallery’s aesthetic."
