Colin Kilian - Show's in Chelsea this Thursday 1/19






This is a rare pleasure. A lot of years ago I had a student who pulled out of my portfolio class. He was the only one who ever did that. Nice guy, didn't say much, seemed to have things going on. I believed it was a mistake to pull out from the class. I was wrong. And I'm glad. He had stuff to do. It was Colin.
I recently saw Colin, at Josh Longo's show in Soho. He's back in New York making things. I recently saw his site, and his work. Colin's recent art may be some of the finest paintings/drawings I've ever seen, anywhere. He is doing something important, changing the landscape and language of painting, and thinking, and being. There is a serious conversation in these beautiful works, questions about what is real, what is perception, and how much can we see or know about ourselves and everything else. Looking at Colin's work is like having someone show you a cosmic secret. See his site below, or click on the work at the top of this feature, or see his site in alum list.

Colin Kilian (pratt grad 2003) is part of a group show this thursday, 6pm, at SS Project Space, 547 west 27th street, suite 210. Curated by Savannah Spirit. See link here: Artcat.com
He didn't mention how many works are showing, but it would be a mistake to miss this show.

Colin's website is orangeorangeorange.com
Check out this site, and then tell me how important this work is.

Congratulations on breathtaking achievements. I can't imagine what's to come! Brilliant.
