"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 space, not just its separate elements. this hopefully stirs and emotionally visceral response with stays with the viewer, encouraging them to see the world around them in a new way." - KC Collins
