Sometimes you just need to make a mess and play with paint to feel right about the world. It’s literally the best therapy out there! Slop it all over the table, get it under your fingernails and on your forehead for days, ruin a good pair of shoes, make a puddle that will be a bitch to clean up and wonder if it will ever dry kind of a mess. And that’s what this was. Trust me, the artist still has paint on their shoes from the day this was created. Anyway, buy this original abstract artwork to remind yourself to let go and get wild!

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. Like a squirrel, he is attracted to shiny things and free nuts. He’s been included in numerous Flint Institute of Arts Student Exhibitions, Arte Della Morte at Mainsail Collective (Flint, MI 2019), Kaleidoscope of Expression at Pontiac Creative Arts Center (Pontiac, MI 2019), and the Blick Art Materials Local Artist Winter Showcase (Detroit, MI 2019).
