Ashley Collins' large-scale, immersive paintings integrate figurative imagery (often horses) with historical documents, metal, and other media. The surface of each work is textured and tactile, an effect she achieves through aging layers of recycled paper—pages from old books, dictionaries, and encyclopedias—outdoors on racks. For Collins, the horse is a metaphor of power, strength, love, and endurance. Powerful, majestic and warm, Collins’ paintings resonate with collectors from across the globe such as Blythe Danner, Lady Gaga, Robert Redford, Stanlee and Gerald Rubin (Founders of the Rubin Center for Visual Arts), Steven Spielberg, Jill St. John, Alice Walton (Founder of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art), Deborah Winger. Her work can also be found in the following museum and corporate collections; Singapore Art Museum, Republic of Singapore; Laguna Art Museum, Laguna Beach, CA; Museum of Fine Arts, Hanoi, Vietnam; Metropolitan Museum of Manilla, Manilla, Philippines; Riverside Art Museum, Riverside, CA; Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Virginia, US; the US Embassy's in Brunei, Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia, and Tanzania; 20th Century Fox, Los Angeles, CA; Warner Brothers Films, Los ANgeles, CA; and Corliss Estate Winery, Walla Walla, WA.
