FROM DARKNESS TO ENLIGHTENMENT
THE ALLEGORICAL WORKS OF MICHAEL ROQUE COLLINS
Over the past forty years, my work invites one to imagine tidal influences where currents of the poetic bring to the shore urgencies of thought. The paintings in this 30-year survey exhibition, From Darkness to Enlightenment - The AllegoricaI Paintings of Michael Roque Collins are rooted in the reaIm of Post Symbolism. They are filtered through the Iens of consciousness and content where the human condition is placed in opposition with the forces of modernism. Art about Iife co-mingling with art about art has allowed my paintings to speak more clearly through the power of abstraction heId in balance with the energy of figuration.
