Here’s a blip about Colin from the Dowling Walsh Gallery in Rockland, ME (click on link to read more and to see more paintings):
Colin Page’s 2012 exhibition was highlighted in Maine Home + Design’s April 2012 art issue. To download a copy of the article, click here: “Show Stoppers.”
Colin Page was raised in Baltimore, MD and attended the Rhode Island School of Design. He transferred to Cooper Union with a concentration on painting. Upon graduation he lived in New York City for three years where he was an active member in the art world. In search of a more diverse landscape, Page moved to Maine where he found more time to devote to his art.
Page creates all his work on site and focuses on capturing the atmosphere and light of a scene. He believes through painting he finds moments of beauty in the space around him.
“Through painting, I share unexpected moments of beauty that I find in the space around me. Painting is how I share the poetry of experience. ”
Colin gave an artist talk about his exhibition, “Camden”, at the Camden Public Library in March 2011. Watch the video here: Colin Page Artist Talk 2011.
Colin gave an artist talk about his exhibition in June 2010, which is available to watch here: Colin Page Artist Talk 2010.
Catch you back here tomorrow!
