Ashley Collin received a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from University College Falmouth, Cornwall, UK in 2010. Ashley Collin’s paintings find representation through the language of abstraction and pure geometrical forms, transitioning them to new visual experiences and states. Collin’s paintings emulate modernist techniques such as symmetrical representations, flat areas of colour, line and pattern. In many works a grid-like image is present, dividing the surface to create patterns that relate to the dimensions of the support. Collin’s intuitively recycles the use of the grid concept, existing images and ideas which are layered onto the compositions with vivid or muted colours.
