I Said No… More Candy
Rebecca Potts is a teaching artist from Montana currently living in Los Angeles. Her work is inspired by the intersection between ecological concern and the female experience. Using play-doh and polymer clay, she creates clay paintings of urban and suburban scenes, interiors of domestic life, and close-ups of the body. There is a playfulness in using these materials of childhood, yet there’s also something dystopian about the way the clay wiggles and cracks. This work advocates for the importance of play, of slowing down, of taking time to squeeze clay in your hands and notice the particular grays of the sidewalk and road.
