Ed Potokar


Wallace L. Anderson Gallery, Bridgewater State University


Inventor, artist and musician are a few of the titles that could be aptly used to describe Ed Potokar. The work presented at the Anderson are all functional musical instruments crafted by the hand of the artist with the goal of pushing the envelope of traditional forms. With a focus on percussion and stringed instruments; Potokar references Miro in the use of tight linear compositions of metal and wood that hint towards the figurative. Sweeping steel lines act as would pencil on paper to define the highly refined planes of hardwood. These works in the end are three dimensional drawings which have the added ability to involve the participants within the kinetics of music.
