Utrecht Competition 2010:
Bust of Richard Serrin by Matthew Collins
Terra cotta, life-size.
Collins is deeply impressed by the work of the Old Masters, and endeavors to revive a similar language that is relevant today. The power and psychological possibility of the portrait greatly informs his work. He lives in Illinois.
