Jacob Potter


My work is studio based and I explore the possibilities of paint and found three dimensional objects. I work with ephemeral sculptures that are contructed with found objects that I accumulate in my studio. The sculptures are a starting point to paintings which combine throwaway materials such as wrapping, cardboard boxes and conatainers. These materials are reorganised into arangements that explore complex new spaces emerging from the transformation of disposable objects into works that question conventional defintions of painting of painting and sculpture.
