Bobby Coleman, Detail from painting "Clean up in aisle 5"
Bobby Coleman paints to make something that he wants to see in the world. Coleman deconstructs objects, symbols, and colors found within the urban landscape into a deeply layered composition that echoes the chaos and visual noise he encounters in daily life. Each element is a recalled visual memory, simplified into line, color, or form. These elements are then expanded and built upon acting as recalled memory often does, clouded and re-contextualized over time.
