In Residence on the verandahs at Donnelly River Village
20-26 June 2023
Ross Potter is a Kamilaroi man living and working full time as an Artist on Wudjuk Noongar Boodjar, Fremantle. He works with graphite and paper to produce highly detailed, often large-scale representations of his subjects.
Through magnifying microscopic features, Ross brings the abstractions of reality to our attention, while telling compelling stories of everyday life.
Well-known works include the life-size sketch of Perth Zoo’s elephant Tricia for Fremantle Arts Centre’s Animaze: Amazing Animals for Kids and WHALE at High Tide 17 Fremantle Biennale on display at Boola Bardip WA Museum
Natural decay is a recurring theme in Ross’s work. His subjects are often in a state of deterioration, questioning our relationship with nature and the environment.
