Kristine Potter’s first solo exhibition at Daniel Cooney Fine Art, culls from images made during the last four years as she has been mining her complex feelings toward the military, a subject which she has long, familial connection. For many generations most of the men in her family earned their living and defined their purpose as military officers. Growing up in this military culture, Potter’s childhood was saturated with orderliness, hierarchy, patriotism and a certain knowledge of “the enemy”. Being a child (and adult) interested in nuance, culture, progressive ideas and non-conformity, she was often at odds with the governing forces in her life. She says of her childhood, “True respect aside, I struggled to understand war and how one could take command to engage… I wanted to understand the organization of violence and power, and I yearned to humanize the tough exteriors of these men against all of the anxieties I felt when thinking of their jobs and of their structure.” Despite the long line of military men in Potter’s family, her generation has declined to enroll, ending the long lineage. read more here
