From the Introcution: Attempting to introduce the painting of Michael Collins is like trying to describe an aesthetic Big Bang: A phenomenal convergence of beauty - so profound and deep that sometimes, as William Blake would say, it is a terrible beauty; - and intense visual energies that propel enigmas and mysteries from deep within the human consciousness and subconscious. This collision produces images (sparked out of thick paint on the canvases of Collins' seismic explosions) of transcendent spiritual power.

Review:

Encountering Micheal Roque Collins' work is simultaneously a collision and a meditation. Content ignites vibrant form; form reveals forgotten dreams, evokes distant epochs, and unbars private metaphors that slowly, seductively become our own. A major talent on the American and European scenes, Collins embodies the thinking artist who, from the vantage point of the twenty-first century, conjures up the continuum of the past as inspiration for the present. --Dr. Alessandra Comini, University Distinguised Professor of Art History, Emeritus, Southern Methodist University

Michael Roque Collins is an artist of profound importance in our contemporary world, a world often rife with disbelief. He is well known as a spiritual painter by virtue of his intense interest in mankind's struggle with the fate of our planet and the state of the human condition. As a painter, he symbolically renders the landscape and its environs in a painterly expressionism that is heartfelt and uniquely his own. --Jim Edwards, Director/Curator/Art Writer, Houston Baptist University
