Artyce Colen - Art is the one constant in my life and balance is the theme evident in all my work. In contrast to my oil paintings, which I did for years, my new work is entirely different…wooden constructions.
These constructions are my interpretations of the time and place we live. Within the framework of the rectangular shapes intermingle many ambiguities.
I feel we are contained… not so much by life around us… as by our own thoughts and our own limitations. I am still primarily interested in balance and tension of opposing forces and transforming these energies into descriptions all my own. In my new multiple pieces, each piece is individual yet strengthens the whole. There is a common focus and unity. The interaction between the elements forms the thrust of my work.
