PAT POTTER | OCT 6, 2014
Monday, October 6, 2014
Inside the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art
Pat Potter creates enigmatic artworks in the form of three-dimensional maps that she refers to as Isomorphic Maps. Ostensibly representing a one-hundred-mile stretch of northern Alabama, these works also expand outward to the cosmos, then inward again into the dark energy of particle physics. The series, called Patterns of Place, offers a tantalizing mix of technical experimentation, metaphoric expansiveness, and curiosity in every square inch. Born in Charleston, but a longtime resident of Alabama, Potter has developed her own artmaking techniques, informed by her extensive background in architecture. Through the development of these idiosyncratic techniques, she has found ways to give unique expression to the ideas that animate her.
Pat Potter: Patterns of Place will be our featured exhibition in January 2015, and will then travel nationally. We are producing a monograph and video to accompany the exhibition.
