Ben Potter

Ben Potter grew up in Tennessee and lives in Belfast Maine. He majored in Art and Biology at Williams College and received his MFA from the California College of the Arts.

I am interested in the oscillation between representation and abstraction. These pieces are derived from patterns found in the landscape.
