“Negotiating between my nature and the nature of my materials, I look at the world,” Darryl Pottorf has said. The artist uses a highly technical approach to amass imagery from his world travels into mixed-media works. Using a technique developed in the early 1990s in the studio of Robert Rauschenberg (whom Pottorf assisted and eventually collaborated with for more than 20 years) Pottorf employs a transfer process that involves scanning his photographs into a computer and printing them onto soluble, film-like material; the images can be transferred to his surface by pressure, resulting in subdued colors and delicate forms. Pottorf likens his original photographs to an underpainting which he then layers with pigment. Within his visually provocative imagery, Pottorf has captured Buddhist monks in prayer, the souks in Morocco, and suburban backyards, all with his astute eye for classical architecture and forms.
