Ross Potter is a full-time artist with a studio at the J Shed in Fremantle, WA. Originally from Brisbane, Potter made his move to the West coast in 2007, working in the steel industry and creating art in his spare time. In 2011 he decided to take his art more seriously with the creation of his first solo exhibition. Potter’s passion for the arts continued to grow as his practice developed, leading him to pursue his artistic career full time in 2013. Using graphite on paper,Potter dedicates his time to capturing the details in our everyday lives and finds escapism can exist in the simplicity of our very own reality. Altering perspectives and challenging our sense of place, Potter’s work captures the slow evolution of the urban landscape and how we, as a community, interact with our surroundings. As we fall in and out of love, it is the romance in these minute details that brings us all together. Potter has held several successful solo exhibitions, as well as participated in special events, such as the invited feature artist at the 2016 Mazenod College Art Exhibition, 2017 Joondalup invitation award, also a finalist in the 2015 and 2017 Black Swan Portrait Prize.
