In Conversation: Tom Colcord and Glen Helfand
In describing Colcord’s work, Helfand writes: “He’s taken to the environment, filling his studio, and this exhibition, with large otherworldly canvases and small studies of pattern and straightforward landscape that function like orbiting moons caught in the pull of visual essence. We enter Colcord’s universe with our own subjectivities, and we feel part of this place, too.”
