ASHLEY COLL - Bio

Hailing from the New York Metropolitan rea, Ashley Coll studied art at Vassar, Columbia, Hofstra University, The Art Students' League in New York and the Du Cret School of Art in New Jersey. Ashley also has her Master’s degree in Applied Art. She shared her talents and knowledge as an instructor at several community colleges and the University of Virginia's Far Eastern Division in Okinawa.

Although Ashley has worked in various mediums (ceramics, oil, and metal, creating a line of avant garde jewelry), the chosen medium for her most recent work is watercolor, acrylic, Chinese inks and rice paper on canvas. She achieves her visual effects by applying multiple layers of glazes and occasionally acrylic gels for texture.

Ashley attempts to present vignettes of nature in an up close and personal way. "I don't want to stand back from nature and view the broad picture, but prefer to examine it under my microscope presenting a more intimate portrayal. I attempt to create a world of beauty and mystery the viewer will want to enter, and in entering, discover something uniquely visionary."

In her latest series, Cosmic Queries, Ashley Coll has immersed herself in the mythic archetypical questions, about the universe, that man has been asking for a millennia. She sees the macrocism and microcism as mirrored images of a connected whole… “as above so below.” In this latest series, Ashley seeks to draw the viewer into her provocative quest and provoke the awe and wonder she sees in the universe.
