Tarey Potter is a mixed/multi-media artist aspiring to continually evolve his own creativity and provoke thought and inspiration in others. The inherent visual seductiveness, along with the conciseness of his artworks, further complicates the reception of their manifold layers of meaning. Tarey currently lives and works in Boise, Idaho.

Artist Statement, Photography:
My work begins through the use of digital SLR photography and a computer, which emphasizes the endless medium of digital media. I explore the abstract and creative lighting through handmade scenery as motifs to describe the idea of imaginary space. Using props, models and multiple images as patterns, I try to create meditative environments that provoke thought and inspiration.


Artist Statement, Sculpture:
My work is an attempt to transform ordinary matter into something extraordinary, to bridge the conceptual realm to the material world. I recycle and repurpose objects using materials in ways that distill and represent various aspects of their inherent physical properties, revealing an unexpected beauty in a previously unseen way.


History:
I have been an artist since I was a child, working in a variety of media including paint (oil and watercolor), mixed media, sculpture, photography, digital music, graphic arts and website design. I aspire to evolve my own creativity and inspire others through my company Thee Art Of, a free gallery and resource website that in turn helps to generate community arts involvement and volunteerism.


Education / Professional Experience:
I have degrees in graphic design, desktop publishing and offset printing. I have been working as a graphic artist for over twenty years, in both design and production. Current graphic design work includes website design, business cards and brochures, postcards and other media for a variety of people and businesses.
