K.C. Collins
Portrait of a Man (Woman Artist, Modernism, Figural, Charleston, Red, Yellow)

2001

About

A study of a man arbitrarily painted in monochromatic tones of ochre against a vibrant red background. Signed lower right, 'KC Collins' and dated 2001. With influence from JMW Turner and Gerhard Richter, KC Collins studied fine art at Elon University. As a junior in college, she was accepted into the Piccolo Spoleto Outdoor Art Exhibit in Charleston, South Carolina, and received an Honorable Mention Award. She has participated in the show every year since then. KC describes her artistic approach as pulling from extremes to find a place where the abstract and the real meet. She strives to, “give the viewer an impression of the entire atmosphere of a given scene, not just its separate elements.” KC now resides in Charleston, SC, and continues to participate in several fine art festivals around the country throughout the year. ARTIST'S STATEMENT In my paintings, I pull from extremes; bold and soft, saturated and muted colors, movement and stillness. The images fade among positive and negative spaces. It is between these two extremes that I find a special place where the abstract and the real meet. By simplifying selected details, I strive to give an impression of the entire atmosphere of a given scene, not just its separate elements. This hopefully stirs an emotionally visceral response that stays with the viewer, encouraging them to see the world around them in a new way.
