David Collins' photography transforms the audience into an active voyeur; someone who is overwhelmed and engulfed by its effect, yet who, through curious interest, moves beyond the image surface to engage at a deeper level.
Each work's shimmering colours and dramatic contrasts are visual poetry, gradually shifting the gaze into fascination and wonder. His large-format photographs comment on his generation's hedonistic mind-set and preoccupation with luxury and decadence.
David Collins recently graduated in Arts from Curtin University with several awards. He was one of Australian Art Collector magazine's "Undiscovered" emerging artists in 2010.
