The art presented here by Pylon Studios is exclusively the work of JP Collins. JP works in mixed media. His current work is on high-quality, thick, cotton-rag, print making paper and incorporates gouache, colored pencil, and collage.
JP’s work is about material, texture, color, contrast of imagery and line, especially line. Natural objects like seed pods, plants, fruit and vegetables are often presented in fragments and rendered in simple line or shape.
JP likes to transform the mundane into something remarkable by focusing attention on fragments of an object or reducing it to the basic elements of color, shape and texture. “Beauty is everywhere but we don’t always stop and observe it. And although the things I present in my work may be beautiful on their own, my job is to use my vision and materials to describe things differently than the way we normally see them.”
JP received his BFA in Conceptual Design and Painting at San Francisco State University and studied painting with Robert Bechtel and Cherie Raciti.
