Adam Collier

A 19 year old artist just trying to express my ideas through photographs, sculpture and painting.

Once, Picasso was asked what his paintings meant. He said, “Do you ever know what the birds are singing? You don’t. But you listen to them anyway.” So, sometimes with art, it is important just to look.

Started a new painting just about finished the head and hand

Started a new painting just about finished the head and hand

This is a current experimentation looking at combining the silhouette of a recognisable shape with a detailed emulsion print but placing them together in an unconventional way. What I do like about this piece is the fact it can be viewed from more than one angle. It is that combination of old and new, represented by the old status of the bowler hat but also the converse that the legs are wearing. It is still running with that idea of simplicity but I don’t think it is interesting enough for me personally, of course other people may disagree. Maybe I need to bring more colour into it but on the other hand that could be very over powering. I think at the moment I need to just keep on creating and see where that takes me.
