The artist usually draws inspiration from anything that would make a Fox News watching, church going, trump voting, my-other-car-is-a-Porsche bumper sticker having, why-do-they-kneel-for-the-flag saying, conservative republican angry. Those things actually tickle him to no end. This original collage was created in 2022 as the January 6 investigation was happening because sometimes you just need to put your hope in a politician who isn’t a rich, old, white man.
Mixed Media Collage

Cory Potter is a Michigan based artist who hoards paper for collage, paint for abstracts, and glitter for both. He is interested in the weird, the bright, the queer, the garish, the strange, and the unconventional and will use anything as an art supply. Much of his work explores the concepts of identity, voice, and connectedness within marginalized communities, pop culture, and the performing arts. Like a squirrel, he is attracted to shiny things and free nuts. He’s been included in numerous Flint Institute of Arts Art School Exhibitions (Flint, MI), Arte Della Morte at Mainsail Collective (Flint, MI 2019), Kaleidoscope of Expression at Pontiac Creative Arts Center (Pontiac, MI 2019), Blick Art Materials Local Artist Winter Showcase (Detroit, MI 2019), Fenton Art Council’s New Directions Exhibition (Fenton, MI 2022), and as one of the featured artists at Rainbow Riot inside the Dark Art Market in Lansing, MI. During 2020, he participated in virtual exhibitions with the Detroit Deltas (Detroit, MI) and the Harvey Milk Festival (Sarasota, FL). Follow him on Instagram at @cup_of_coco.
