Artist Statement

While discovering the pun that exists within the words pacific ocean I also found the that within that is the double meaning of the ocean making many different sounds and also that the people of the Pacific speak many different, unique and important languages and therefore different sounds.

About the Artist

Elliot Collins

I am a text based artist who works in an interdisciplinary way incorporating painting, language, photography, installation and sculpture to discuss ideas of time, memory and ways we interpret our environment. I am interested in the art that can inform our lives and can be used as a filter or divining tool to see the world we inhabit with greater clarity and purpose. I live and work in Taranaki after moving from Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland in 2021 which has given me an even greater perspective and insight as to the power and purpose of a creative practice.
