Gallery: Yungarra Gallery
Ross Potter is a Kamilaroi man living in Perth who works with graphite and pencil to produce highly detailed representations of the natural world.
Through magnifying microscopic features, Ross brings the abstractions of reality to our attention, while telling compelling stories of everyday life.
Ross’s most recent artworks are anthropomorphic in nature, reflecting human characteristics in animal forms to tell stories of pain, suffering and adversity.
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.
