Artist Statement

This is another metaphor yet at the same time a reality, throwing stones in the river in order to change

it's course in the smallest way. We look in awe as rivers carry massive stones and small pebbles to the

coast this also acts as powerful metaphor for the river of life.

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.
