The Painting Center is pleased to present Colleen Randall: Recent Paintings in the Main Gallery and Paul Collins: Into the Yellow Wood in the Project Room.
Rooted in the tradition of the sublime, Colleen Randall is an abstract painter whose work explores space and light through the materiality of paint. In her current exhibition, Recent Paintings, her heavily impastoed surfaces erupt with light and color revealing the radiance at the core of all matter and being. Imbued with mystery, a spiritual presence emanates from deep within the layers of paint. Through form and composition, she investigates elusive states of consciousness.
Colleen Randall received her MFA in Painting from Queens College, City University of New York. A Professor in the Studio Art Department at Dartmouth College since 1989, she is the recipient of the National Academy of Design’s Edwin Palmer Memorial Award for Painting, a Marion and Jasper Whiting Foundation Fellowship Grant and an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Research Grant. She has been selected for artist residencies at Yaddo, The MacDowell Colony, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, the Millay Colony and Landfall Trust in Brigus, Newfoundland. She has had solo exhibitions at commercial galleries and alternative spaces throughout the country, including Spheris Gallery, Kenkelaba Gallery, and The Painting Center in New York; Ober Gallery in Kent, CT; Elliot Smith Gallery in St. Louis; and Susan Conway Gallery in Washington, D.C. She has been a visiting artist
at the Anderson Ranch, Vermont Studio Center, University of New Hampshire, Binghamton University, Haverford College, American University, Delaware College of Art & Design, Art Institute of Boston, Swarthmore College, and the Caumsett Summer Painting Program as well as numerous other universities, art institutions and colleges.
Paul Collins’ exhibition, Into the Yellow Wood, will feature a series of painted and collaged images that examine the absurdity of the artist’s own unshakeable romantic naturalism. These works examine the construction of natural beauty under the scouring light of ecological armageddon. Collins’ work pits the imagery of the inspired but needy naturalist with the indifferent gaze of nature itself. These works utilize layering, intense chroma and gesture to bring discrete realities into conversation. In doing so these works act as flytraps for the contradictions that embody the ambivalence of our place in the natural world.
