Solomon Fine Art is delighted to host an exhibition of new paintings by artist Clifford Collie.
Having spent most of his life living and working between Ireland and Spain, dual habitation has been an important nutritive element in Collie's response to painting. His subject matter, style and methods of working are bound up in a personalised vision, based on his understanding of nature and self.
For Collie, painting is an exploratory and emotive response to the world he inhabits and as such the artist tries to capture his environment in various guises; observing, shaping and reshaping nature to a level where it becomes an allegory to life itself.
Clifford Collie was born in Dublin in 1960. He attended the National College of Art and
Design, Dublin after which he became a full member of Temple Bar Gallery and Studios.
In 1992 Collie moved to Spain where he currently lives and works.
