Colin Page was raised in Baltimore, MD and attended the Rhode Island School of Design. He graduated from Cooper Union, New York with a concentration on painting. Upon graduation he lived in New York City for three years where he was an active member in a large and thriving art community. In search of a more diverse landscape, Page moved to Maine. In Maine, Colin paints the coast en plein air and focuses on capturing the atmosphere and light of a scene.
Colin says about his most recent work… “These paintings are about where land and water meet – on the dining table, in the kitchen and in the landscape. Some of the landscapes are about the colors along the coastline and others are about how our waterfront engages land and sea. Whatever the subject, color and light are my main attraction to a scene as I start painting. With still life the reflections on the fish caught my eye, along with the highlights on the glassware and the colorful pattern. In the landscape I look for warm sunlight and reflected color to describe the scene. This show is about visual decadence. Whether I’m painting pattern and light, or the chaos of a working harbor, I experience the world through color, shape and line.”
