There are no narratives in my work, only connections and relationships among the formal elements of the piece and between the viewer and the subject. I’m not interested in painting a figure in space, surrounded by things. I’m only interested in the inner dialogue, the extent to which I can touch another person just through paint. To do that, sometimes I have to see how much I can leave out of a piece and still make a connection. Can I say what I need to say by depicting just a mouth, or the tip of a finger, or the tiniest flex of an eyebrow? 2- How important is process versus end results? For me, process is just as important as the end result because it becomes that result. I want a surface you can excavate. A surface that is as complex and layered as I need it to be. My paintings grow in layers and those layers are what makes you spend time with the piece when it is finished. 3- What is your ultimate goal when painting the figure? My ultimate goal is to blur the borders between the sublime and the grotesque to the point where the figure transcends being just the subject of the painting. I want the illusion of the figure to become one with the physicality of the paint and convey the complexity of life’s experiences. 4 -What do you like best about your work? I am such an introverted, emotional person and when I make a painting I can’t help but infuse it with everything I am feeling and experiencing at that moment. My work becomes this powerful, visceral connection to others. 5- What do you do you like least about your work? I am constantly fighting my tendency to get really tight and precise with the paint. I want my paintings to be full of movement and gesture and texture and sometimes to achieve that I have to embrace chance and throw a little paint from across the room. 6 -Why the figure? The figure is the most complicated organic form in existence. It is continuously challenging. There is also no better way to connect to people than to paint something they can instantly relate to- the depiction of another human being just like them. 7- Which are your greatest influences? The work of Ann Harris and Marlene Dumas both had a huge influence on me in graduate school. 8- What is your background? Originally from Philadelphia, I completed my BFA at Maryland Institute College of Art in 2011 and my MFA at New York Academy of Art in 2015. I am currently living and working in Chicago. 9- Name three artists you'd like to be compared to in history books. Cindy Sherman Marilyn Minter Jenny Saville 10- What is your favorite work in the exhibition besides your own and why? "The Motions of Grace" by Margaret Bowland. She has a masterful command of oil painting and everything she makes is so incredibly beautiful. and touching. Gape & Watch oil on wood 6x6 inches @ellopainting @elloart @shainacraft1

ello.co10 QUESTIONS SERENA POTTER grew - dulcemenendez10 QUESTIONS WITH SERENA POTTER I grew up in Culver City CA, drawing for as long as I can remember. I moved to Utah in junior high. Went to Cottey College for women after high school, located in Missouri, for my AA degree, then transferred to the University of Utah to complete a BFA in studio art and Spanish. After having lived in England and New Hampshire where I worked with local art associations and galleries, I moved back to California and attended Laguna College of Art and Design for an MFA. I currently mentor in their MFA program. I teach studio art and art history classes for National University and Mt. San Antonio College. I put most of my time into my studio, my family, exercising and making good vegan food. PAINTING THE FIGURE NOW, 2018 1- What is different from your work than others when painting the figure now? My work is a fusion of many influences, personal narrative, contemporary elements with Golden Illustrator color pallet, multiple figures and sub plots, leading to a unique aesthetic. 2- How important is process versus end results? Process is essential and can take years of development before I even start painting. I often gather props, create my own, even paint backgrounds. 3- What is your ultimate goal when painting the figure? To tell a story that will pull people into the painting, hold them there and evoke a response. 4 -What do you like best about your work? I love that with each piece I feel a sense of accomplishment, like adding more weight to your work out and thinking, wow, I didn't know I could do that. 5- What do you do you like least about your work? At times I do reach a point where I am ready to be done with it, but it isn't quite there yet, and I have to push through. I get impatient. 6 -Why the figure? I love people, body language, facial expression. Using the figure is the most fulfilling way that I know of to tell the human story. 7- Which are your greatest influences? Personal experience, 1940's and 50's film, Living in England for five years and being exposed to the artists, visual history and art there, literature. 8- What is your background? Attended Cottey College for women, The University of Utah and Laguna College of Art and Design. 9- Name three artists you'd like to be compared to in history books. Alfred Hitchcock, Norman Rockwell, F Scott Hess. 10- What is your favorite work in the exhibition besides your own and why? The piece by OFELIA ANDRADES. The activity and interaction between the figures and cat drew me in. It feels as though it is telling the story of the room and people who inhabit it through the day, a time laps, rather than a single moment. There is a narrative there, rather than just looking at a figure for the sake of the figure as object.
