This is Andrew Potter's fifth exhibition at Adonis Art.

Mr. Potter continues his exploration of the effects of light on classically ideal male figures, light that sculpts the body to provide dramatic form and veiled narrative. In this current series of paintings Andrew has broadened and enriched his colour palette and built the narrative content to a new level.

His subjects are caught unawares and unobserved in private moments. The individual identity of each remains ambiguous in either the way the images are cropped, the way the models are posed, or by the fall of light and shadow on their bodies. This enhances the voyeuristic feel and latent sense of eroticism.

However, warm tonality and soft edged style adds romanticism to the work. Thus they become an exchange of confidences between the artist and viewer of a private and intimate moment.

ENCOURAGEMENT
"My drawings are primarily meant for guys who may have experienced misunderstanding and oppression and feel that they have somehow failed in their lives. I want to encourage them. I want to encourage this minority group, to tell them not to give up, to think positively about their act and whole being." (1990) — Tom of Finland
