artist statement

creating an interrelated practice involving both an evolutionary and tangential trajectory andrew collins’ work is informed by landscape and history. through experience and an informed relationship with his surroundings he is able to experiment with form and materiality creating visual work that mimics simple and elegant natural processes. the thematically broad work takes cues from geology, time passage, cosmology, art history, anthropology, life and death. work emerges from an involvement with new processes and materials often outside of intention. the control of chance, force, and accident around the accumulation of varied materials helps shape different bodies and future exploration. each piece is a fragment, a new building block in the evolving scope of the combined bodies of creative output.
