Receding lights punctuate the sky like stitches across a piece of fabric. Each one gives the landscape a warming welcoming glow. Collins portrays his vision of his surroundings in a series of horizontal and vertical brushstrokes, which create a textural and energetic artwork. His palette is a play of contrasts, from the dark indigos that are reminiscent of denims, the haunting pale tones of ochres, to the warm hues of raw sienna.
His distinctive and unique style of painting is a direct influence from his long experience as a handloom weaver and textile designer. The fabric-like appearance of his paintings are a purposeful one.
