Valley House has represented David Collins since 2010, and we are pleased to welcome him back to Texas for his third exhibition here. His 2016 move from the bustle of New York City to Long Island influenced a change in his palette that reflects the peaceful, natural atmosphere of his new surroundings. His personal iconography of shapes and memory continues to reference architectural elements as well as aviation motifs inspired by his family's history in inventing Cold War era technology. In these new paintings, the kaleidoscope of shifting geometric planes are painted directly onto sealed but unprimed linen. Collins is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and a recipient of fellowships at Yaddo Artist Colony in 2003 and 2005 and at Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop in 2008.
Jesuit Dallas Museum will present an exhibition of David Collins' paintings and color monotypes as part of the 75th Anniversary Celebration at Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas. David Collins graduated from Jesuit in 1984. Jesuit Dallas Museum is located at 12345 Inwood Road, Dallas, TX 75244. The exhibition at Jesuit Dallas Museum will be on view from March 23 through May 28, 2018. Contact the Jesuit Dallas Museum Director at 972-387-8700 to schedule a tour.
