Chris Pothier, A Large Crowd Gathers, Completely Transfixed by a Most Unnatural Event, 2022

Come see this painting in the Folly show I’m curating at Figure Ground Art Gallery in Seattle, opening Nov 3rd, 2022.

This painting comes from Pothier’s Dreams series, where viewers are brought into surrealist, dream-like worlds. About this painting Pothier states “This one I created thinking about how the masses are drawn to a chaotic event or a disaster, as witnesses or curious people, and are actually in impending doom.” It’s like deer in the headlights.
