“Captain Planet”

This spring, Kavachnina Contemporary presents Captain Planet, a group exhibition about the individual’s will to power in a globalized world. Featuring Jerry Powers, Salustiano, Romulo Royo, Jacques Bosser, Michael Shultis, Vasily Kafanov, Benoit Alcouffe, Henry Bermudez, Kiseok Kim, Fang Lijun, Feng Zhengjie, and the Luo Brothers. Miami Media giant Jerry Powers is the show’s culminating “Captain Planet” entity, considering his focus on animal-ethics. He has gained notoriety for his mug-shot paintings of celebrities like Jim Morrison, Shaq, and Pit-bull, done in a style he describes as “neo pop expressionism.” While the rawness and grit of the aesthetic may resemble something cynical, even transgressive, his paintings come from a much warmer place.
