Colin Poole is active/lives in New Mexico, Virginia. Colin Poole is known for classical real landscape and still life painting, sculpture.
Colin Poole was a sculptor before he was a painter; today he is adept at both art forms. Born in Washington, DC, and raised in Virginia, Poole came from an artistically sensitive family. The most artistic being his grandmother, sculptor Una Hanbury. "She was my hero," says Poole unabashedly.
He now lives and works in her Santa Fe, NM home and studio. Using a spotlight and sometimes even a magnifying glass for his still lifes, Colin favors simple compositions. It's the dance of the subtleties between the two or three elements within them that distinguishes them from one another. They have a quiet simplicity," notes the artist.
