Maloney Fine Art is pleased to present an exhibition of paintings and drawings by Travis Collinson, the artist’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles.
Drawing from the influences of both classical painting and minimal abstraction, Travis Collinson’s work creates a framework for people, nature and space to exist in an anxious state of entropy. With a skewed perspective and distortion of unassuming subjects, objects and environments, the artist’s compositions are at once familiar and enigmatic. Collinson’s painting and drawing style, influence by the early work of Lucien Freud, juxtaposes near-photographic rendering, subtle exaggeration and a pallet of muted tones to create remarkably quiet scenes inhabited by sublime, psychological subjects.
Collinson has shown throughout California, most recently at the Berkeley Art Museum exhibition ‘Hauntology’ and Eli Ridgeway Gallery in San Francisco. His work is in the permanent collection of the Berkeley Art Museum as well as numerous private collections. Collinson holds a BFA in painting from California State University at Fullerton.
