The Free Antiques Campaign

The Free Antiques Campaign

The Moores Building Contemporary Art Gallery, Fremantle, 2012

The Free Antiques Campaign highlights a number of elements of the wonderful heritage of the Fremantle area—some of it yet to capture the broader imagination—old antiques awaiting their day. Potter felt compelled to record them in the hope of at least capturing some of the ‘soul’ of these Fremantle icons. He chose to draw freehand to capture the slowly evolving, almost mobile, character of his subjects as they slowly decay, or are altered by those who inhabit them.
