About Peter


Peter & Madeline Powell are artists who have wed exacting technical photorealism to the sensual memories of one childhood’s most pleasurable activities: Eating Candy! Not only getting it, but holding it, looking at it, and unwrapping it – the smell, touch shape & taste of it all come strikingly through the dramatically over-sized images of Hershey Kisses, Bazooka Bubble Gum, M&M’s & lollipops – to name a few… The Powell’s have covered other subjects, most notably Toys, Crayons, Cars & Food.

The Powells explain their work by saying, “Life’s treats and play things from the past & present are what we capture in our paintings. We enjoy taking the little things out of everyday life and giving them the prominence and importance they had when we were children. Our paintings invoke the childhood spirit that everyday life has buried deep within us.”.
