Lenore Collins | Transition
Opening Reception: Thursday 3rd March, 7 – 9pm
Lenore Collins is an artist and graphic designer. She was born in Massachusetts, US and educated at the Rhode Island School of Design with a bachelors degree in Graphic Design. She has lived in Ireland since 1998 in Dun Laoghaire.
The name of the show is called Transition and relates to her process of moving from a realist painter to an abstract one. This show represents the first several years of this process.
When she wasn’t getting the same fulfillment out of her realistic work she felt restless. After a collaboration project with an abstract artist where she had to think out of her comfort zone, she found an excitement and a new sense of purpose in the new work.
As she went forward down this path of developing abstract pieces she realized that she felt more centered. The reason for this was that she had melded her graphic design sensibilities and her fine art sensibilities into one.
This show is the result of this process.
