Artist Statement

Jim Collins is primarily a Public Art sculptor working in a figurative manner. His sculpture style has been characterized by the use of silhouettes of people and animals constructed of stainless steel, aluminum, and other metals, best exemplified by his long running series the WATCHER.

Recently Collins has added complex polychrome enamel painting to selected silhouettes, i.e. the female figure. "Rejoyce" is the newest silhouette in natural brushed finished aluminum with powder coat and enamel. More examples can be seen at www.collins3d.com.
