James Powers’ found notes, at first glance, seem like off-color scribblings by creepy schoolchildren. Upon closer examination, however, one recognizes his painstaking colored pencil markings that mimic the pen and marker scrawl of their original authors, enabling him to add his personal touch. He discusses his process with David Goodman.

BOMB On The Inside is a conversation series created by David Goodman that engages artists, curators, gallerists, and visionaries to reveal the dynamism and power of creative thought.
Sarah Thornton’s mechanical mind deciphers the gestures hidden within the wild, eccentric, and unregulated art world. Her recent bestseller, Seven Days in the Art World, unlocks the mysteries of this creative sphere that appears to be lit from within.
Outstanding, really. The punch and power of a mark on a page. William Powhida, known for the work created by his alter-ego, also named William Powhida, blends a celebrity’s sense of entitlement with a too-smart-for-his-own-good attitude problem, much like an old-school criminal mastermind from a Batman comic book.
A record keeper in both her drawings and story telling, Lauren Redniss holds tight to details to keep them from being stolen by the pitfalls of memory. Embedding herself within a story by recording interviews and drawing on-site during the conversations, one becomes tangled within the thoughts and learn that all stories are interconnected.
Kadar Brock is focused on the abstract presentation of a fantastical world and creating an analogy for art making and viewing. The stripped down and simple patterning struck me with its rhythmical geometry. The crude markings appear to be left behind by group of cool teenagers bent on creating hazing rituals.
I just received an update from Amir Mogharabi. He’ll be performing “Discussion Around a Stone” at X Initiative this Thursday (Sept 24). So, RSVP ASAP, read our BOMB On The Inside conversation, and then head over to this dynamic event. Amir has created a performance that should not be missed.
Nathalie Ours-Choussat is the Editor in Chief of A Magazine Curated by …, which biannually champions the unique voice of a fashion designer. In our conversation, her voice resonated with such passion and a deep commitment to provide a platform to break down barriers of false perceptions and open eyes to the inspiration behind masterful collections.
I am wrapped in a universe of temporal distortion when looking at Mark Borthwick’s photography. His images and installations, a constant fixture in both the pages of the world’s leading fashion magazines and on the walls of museums and galleries, are dedicated to creating an awareness of who he is at that moment.
A scene of magic, love and a real place that lives inside us all.
