SCAB

Jacob Potter

16 Apr 2015 to 26 Apr 2015

Scab is an exhibition of works developed during Potter’s 2014 residency with CCAS. Potter is influenced by sources as ephemeral as colour and sound, which work as a starting point for him to push painting and drawing to a sculptural level. CCAS program manager and Blaze Nine Curator Alex Boynes emphasised the physicality and influence of sound in Potter’s work, stating “Potter’s process is a live and physical experience, as he makes works in response to the blasting noises and synth squeals that come through his stereo.” In Scab, Potter explores materiality, pictorial space and the possibilities of paint by experimenting with materials and method.
