- Collins homage to cave painting is simply entitled "Horse" and she approached
this magnificent work as a celebration of seeing this majestic creature for the first
time.. as if from a distance, trying to portray a memory.
Hands, the handle edge of the brushes, and movement, all became
Collins toolbox... but as she worked and the hours and days passed, she realized
that she needed to instill the passage of time, thousands of years.
But this would be impossible - wouldn't it? Collins experimented with various
techniques, until she hit on one that worked... she began painting the canvas
panels upside down in constant rotation and allowing the paint to create the time
worn love that history provides....
In this manner, turned in a constant circle... the painting becomes in part, the circle of life.
