  • Sometimes in life, we all need a pick me up. Something visual that makes us smile, no matter how often we see it, no matter how many years pass.

    For Collins, the creation of “Pup” was a revolt against the negative media onslaught, the overwhelming questions presented by altered and posed images, that bear no resemblance to reality.

    By contrast, Pup is reality. It is Joy.

    Pup is in your face happiness spread across five panels of painted chaos that become a symphony of the kindness.

    Hidden in the work are a thousand stories… see if you can find the parent holding the child’s hand, or the head of a horse… just for starters… the stories are endless.

    Pup is simply a wall of happy.
