Colin Kent paints landscapes and interiors from memories, feelings and impressions which display the romantic elements and the spirit of places, filtered through his own vision and artistic sensibilities. He transforms an ordinary view into an extraordinary vision through his use of tonal contrasts, texture, light, and shade, creating works which have vitality, spontaneity and a sense of timelessness.
Kent experiments continuously using a variety of water-based media and collage. This mixture of media often takes over during the painting process, dictating the shape and flow of the work.
