Work from his oeuvre.
“Much of the material Collins chooses to work with are dated and with limited aesthetic means. There is an impending sense of mortality linked to the obsolete junkyard of the virtual realm, where things are lost, or constantly being updated or redefined. Core beliefs about identity, love and the pleasure of the visual are re-housed outside of a traditional artistic dogma or critique and re-presented as short intermittent moments; as enjoyable and entertaining as they are deeply resonant indicators of the current state of the world. ” – Dani Admiss
