ARTIST STATEMENT

My work is an exploration of the limitless expanse of creation. Examining the unknown nature of conciseness. Working in the vein of non-representational communication affords me the ability to look past the expanse of what cannot be experienced by representation alone. Looking past objectivity and to the limitless potentialities of composition, mark and form. The ethereal ability of a work to create space, that push and pull of reality, composition having to work in harmony despite the complex intrigue of stability and interest. Working past the attachment of stability and to greater knowledge of awareness.


ABOUT THE ARTIST


Phillip Potter was born and raised in Denver, CO.  He studied fine art at Metropolitan State College of Denver and then on to The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has since continued to push the limits of composition within the visual arts. Passionate about the arts in the Denver community, he was a Member of EDGE Gallery for many years, one of Denver's oldest galleries. He continues as a maker of art and explorer of knowledge and experimentation through his endeavors as a working artist in Denver.
