In his vibrantly colored paintings and sculptures, Colin O’Con presents viewers with representations of nature. He views nature as a description and it is this description or representation of which he is interested in most. His fluorescent palette appears at times otherworldly or manufactured because we sometimes forget just how odd nature itself is.
O’Con’s work has been included in exhibitions at Fresh Window, Brooklyn, Rawson Gallery, Brooklyn, Lesley Heller Workspace, New York, The Alexandria Museum of Art, Louisiana, Boston Center for the Arts, Artspace, San Antonio, and CSAW, Houston. He won the Tony Smith Sculpture Award.
