San Francisco artist Travis Collinson’s drawing and paintings investigate portraiture, perception and sense of place. His works, though seemingly allegorical, are rooted in a sense of the absurd and abstract. Working from personal photographs and sketches derived from a process of automatism, Collinson selectively couples elements from each, reinterpreting them at a larger scale. Drawing from the influences of both classical painting and minimal abstraction, 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.
