Oil and Alkyd on Canvas
137 x 129cm
Andy Collins’s abstract paintings flirt between the intellect of formalist perfection and the frivolity of high-gloss design. In Untitled, Collins’s jagged pattern tears through his canvas with cartoon violence, suggestive of teeth, geological landscapes or seismological graphs. Effusing his form with a toxic glow, Collins subtly shifts the concentrated flatness of his image to a dynamic element of intrigue. His seamless brushwork renders this painting flawless. This controlled craftsmanship adds depth to the generic aesthetic of mass production.
