Inside and Out: paintings and drawings
Richard Collins is a painter, printmaker and draftsman exhibiting for the 5th time at red gallery.
He is showing streetscapes, scenes of beach and bay, bushland and gardens, and interiors. Many of these works are the result of weekly plein air excursions, in company or alone. He says, “even the most stable motif, such as a still-life under in unchanging light, is unstable under scrutiny, and the act of picture-making from observation becomes a kind of dance between observed phenomena and constructed artifact”
The exhibition also showcases his love for the respective media used: oil, watercolour, charcoal and ink. He hopes juxtaposing works in these media will enrich the viewer’s experience of the exhibition.
