Colin Cochran is an American artist who grew up on Cape Cod and is based in New York and Santa Fe. His paintings have been exhibited widely, including solo shows in New York’s Chelsea and Soho art districts, Hudson, NY, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. His works have been reviewed and won praise in such publications as “Art in America,” “NY Arts,” and “Art and Antiques” magazines. His paintings are included in many private art collections.

Cochran “will take any image or subject in Creation and make it his own ” according to essayist William Zimmer. He typically chooses images from nature, such as ravens, sea birds, Ponderosa pines, armadillos or landscapes. His technique is expressive and dynamic with an emphasis on the texture and complexity of paint. In the words of James Kalm in “NY Arts” magazine, Cochran “is able to develop beautiful and unexpected results that tickle the eye and seem to have been created in a partnership with nature that doesn’t allow for either participant to dominate.” In his own words Cochran has said, “My intention is to create paintings as visual poetry. I want to get down to the essential nature of things.”

Colin Cochran Biography

 “Colin Cochran is omnivorous. It seems he will take any image in Creation and make it his own…. “

        - William Zimmer, contributing art critic for The New York Times

 

“Cochran’s art is that of an inquisitive, restless experimenter who is in considerable command– and, unabashedly, in awe–of the expressive power of paint.”

        - Edward M. Gomez, Art In America

 

“Cochran’s seemingly simple portrayals are, in fact, elemental moral statements about the vitality of being.”

        - Frank Peseckis, Director, Five Points Gallery, East Chatham, New York

 

“...Cochran builds fragile almost ghostly images using an unorthodox mixture of techniques. Breaking all the rules regarding the layering of oil and water based media, the artist is able to develop beautiful and unexpected results that tickle the eye and seem to have been created in a partnership with nature that doesn’t allow for either participant to dominate.”

         - James Kalm, NY Arts Magazine

 

“Colin Cochran’s small, but compelling, oil paintings hover on the border between image and abstraction. His paintings of animal and plant life underscore their fundamental interdependence with childlike awe… They remind us of our basic innocence, despite ourselves.”

         - Bonnie Finberg, Cover Magazine

 

“The mystery in Cochran’s work is ultimately an appeal to the sense of the extraordinary that has, from pre-history’s earliest examples of artistic expression, always informed the depiction of signs and wonders.”

         - John Mendelsohn, Art Critic
