Australian artist Megan Potter draws from the nature of the Blue Mountains where she lives. Using watercolour, charcoal and ink on paper, Potter creates vibrant and expressive artworks of local flowers and birds. Potter is influenced by the music she listens to when she paints. Embracing the fluidity of her mediums, the impulsive and gestural aesthetic creates a feeling of movement and action in the work.
Themes of phenomenology, nature, and evolution are explored through the artist’s energetic abstraction of the subject matter. By composing, purposely, obscured images she creates a dissonance between the viewer and the subject in order to reveal the abstract, strange and phenomenal truth of the visual world.
Potter completed her Honours majoring in drawing at the National Art School in 2013 and has exhibited throughout Sydney and regional NSW. Meaghan has been a finalist in many art prizes and had several sold out exhibitions at .M Contemporary. Her work is in private collections throughout Australia, Hong Kong, UK, Singapore and New Zealand.
