Collin Cessna: A Symphony of Colors and Textures

This week, Harford County Living is thrilled to shine the spotlight on an artist whose work transcends the ordinary, inviting viewers into a world where every stroke and hue tells a story. Collin Cessna, our esteemed Artist of the Week, is a master of transforming canvas and wood panels into captivating narratives that resonate with a diverse audience.

A Diverse Palette of Creativity: Collin Cessna’s artwork is a testament to his versatility and boundless creativity. From the vibrant and lively “Poison Dart Frog” to the serene and contemplative “Buffalo Station,” Collin’s use of oil on cradled wood panels brings each subject to life with stunning clarity and depth. His work is not confined to a single medium or theme; instead, it spans a broad spectrum that includes casein paintings, pastel works, and even unique creations with black walnut ink.

Framed Narratives and Unbound Imagination: Among the standout pieces in Collin’s collection are the framed casein paintings “Pride of Baltimore” and “Industrial Conditions.” These works not only showcase his skill in capturing intricate details and emotions but also his ability to frame a narrative within the confines of a canvas. Each piece invites the viewer to delve deeper, uncovering layers of meaning and connection.

Nature, Urbanity, and the Spaces In-Between: Collin’s artwork navigates through various themes, from the natural beauty of “Ocean Sunset” and the whimsical charm of “Mr. Trash Wheel” to the urban allure of “Snowy Day in Parkville.” His ability to oscillate between the tranquility of nature and the dynamic energy of urban life showcases his profound connection with his surroundings and his versatility as an artist.

Accessibility and Artistic Reach: What makes Collin Cessna’s artwork particularly special is its accessibility. With pieces available across a range of price points, from the more affordable prints to the premium original works, Collin ensures that art enthusiasts at different stages of their collecting journey can find something that resonates with them. His commitment to making art accessible is evident in the variety of his offerings, from matted prints to hand-embroidered beanies and dyed canvas prints.

An Invitation to Explore: As we celebrate Collin Cessna as our Artist of the Week, we invite you to explore the depth and breadth of his work. Each piece is not just an artwork; it’s an invitation to explore the world through Collin’s eyes, to feel the emotions he conveys, and to appreciate the beauty in the details that often go unnoticed.
