​Imagination Changes Everything
2013-12-31
By Patricia Boinest Potter
Featuring photos by Claire Boscher


Ed. Note: Artist Pat Potter’s current project challenges the viewer to see the ordinary in extraordinary detail. Using found objects laden with symbolism and with accompanying photographs, she creates a path of discovery of the complexities of the world around us. 
 
The Artist’s voice:

“Transformation is a daily part of life in my studio. Ideas, tools and materials are in abundance and are in constant motion. I have always loved maps and making connections between things; this current project, Isomorphic Map Tables, is an attempt to discover the connections underlying solid territory.

“From my window I can see Mount Cheaha, the highest point in Alabama. One hundred miles up the road is the beautiful Little River Canyon. The table featured here expresses the hidden dimensions of both, the connections between the seen and the unseen.”
