The word passage can suggest openings, entrances, excerpts, voyages or transference and these concepts take direction in David Collins’ newest solo exhibition, Passage.

As a painter who has lived on an island in the Hawkesbury River of NSW for a number of years, David Collins constantly looks at the evergreen mangroves and waterways that surround his home; contemplating and recording his impressions in charcoal, gouache and graphite. Often sailing across the river in search of new outlooks, Collins chooses a location and works en plein air, quietly studying the landscape that enthrals him.

In this series of drawings and paintings, the possibilities of the Hawkesbury seem endless. Collins’ abstraction of the landscape allows his connection to this environment to unfold poetically. By reducing these scenes to sprawling lines, shapes and often layers of sporadically applied colour; disparate forms and lines dance on the precipice of regathering, forging the perception of movement. In this way, openings emerge, offering personal and emotional pathways into this landscape.
