Geometric planes of rich color create an array of shapes that evoke industrial buildings, domestic dwellings architecture, floors, walls, eaves and overhangs. Silhouettes conjure up cranes, cables and overpasses. Ultimately, these architectural notions do not remain whole; they fracture and fall away to reveal other chambers or the outside world. Collins graduated from Jesuit in 1984. He earned a BFA in painting from Rhode Island School of Design. He is a two-time recipient of the Yaddo Fellowship. His work has been featured in The New York Times and Dallas Art News. Collins' work is in numerous private and corporate collections.
