This website is for my abstract art and poetry. I aim to stay pure to the meaning of abstraction in the artwork. That means there is no figuration whatsoever! I'm working with: shapes, lines, colors, textures, balance, rhythm. etc. which you could summarize as "formal issues". If you think you can see a person, or animal, or face, or seascape..that is your option... but it was not intended on my part. My poetry is a little more wide ranging, and descriptive. But, as with my art, I tend to emphasize the more abstract qualities of language and meaning.
"Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for color, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential. (Wassily Kandinsky)
Brian J Potter has been hailed (by many of his friends) as an artistic genius!
