Known for her expansive abstract landscapes, imbued with quilt-like textural lushness, Allison Collins' paintings are untethered to any exact places. Imparting the emotion of encountering or traveling through open spaces, fields, sky, and vast expanses, the paintings are woven with deeply saturated hues of red, gold, and deep greens and blues. Collins vacillates between causing us to look towards a far-off horizon and shortening the depth of field. At times, she flattens her geometric forms and planes of color – but we are still given a horizon to look towards.

In Deep Abyss, an intense area of ultramarine blue and phthalo green appears to emanate from the right corner, possibly a lake or river. Patches or windows have been marked on top of the blue while the paint was still wet. The bright, yellow ridge system stretching across the middle portion slopes down to the left, terminating in a series of gestural marks made by a wide brush, lending the painting a finely tuned sense of balance and harmony.
