Patricia Boinest Potter
Patterns of Place

Patricia Boinest Potter creates seemingly enigmatic artworks in the form of three-dimensional maps that she refers to as Isomorphic Map Tables and 1:1 Map Insets. They represent a 100-mile stretch of northern Alabama wilderness. The work offers a tantalizing mix of technical experimentation, metaphoric expansiveness, and curiosity in every square inch. Potter lives and works in Anniston, Alabama.
