American, b. 1966

In David Collins' abstracted, geometric paintings, brightly colored planes are simultaneously assembled and fragmented, at once recalling familiar forms and challenging them as shapes disperse into space. Collins explores the fluidity and unreliability of memory by depicting complex, piecemeal recollections of specific places. He shares his family's history in Cold War-era technology, often referencing airports, construction zones, and other industrial sites in addition to domestic interiors. His paintings include wallpaper samples in patterns that reference specific memories of his life; as they split into pieces, they reveal otherwise hidden elements and suggest exterior realms beyond the limitations of a single chamber.
