Matthew Collins was born in Liverpool, Nova Scotia and continues to live in the area. He received his B.F.A. from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (1998), where his main focus was painting and art history.
Matthew has shown his work in numerous solo and group shows along the South Shore, Halifax and Montreal. He received a Creation Grant from Arts Nova Scotia (2013) and has had his work purchased by the Nova Scotia Art Bank (2013, 2015). His work is represented by public, corporate and private collections in Canada, Germany, Holland and the United States.
“My landscape paintings are freely and organically constructed with an emphasis on colour and mark making. I most often paint scenes that are on or adjacent to a body of water. The majority of these being of coastal scenes along the south shore. I love the raw, natural, ever-changing seascapes and often find myself returning to them time and again. However, the way the painting is executed holds more value to me than the subject. Regardless of what or where I am painting, I believe the manner in which the paint is handled should be a novelty for the viewer in and of itself. I use exaggerated colours and employ several different painting methods in a single work in an attempt to achieve this end result.”
