Colin Kent was born in London and now lives in Essex. He studied painting and architecture at Walthamstow College of Art, and worked for a number of years as an architect. He was elected a member of the Royal Institute in 1971. His main sources of inspiration have awlays been the coastal and inland locations of East Anglia. However Colin has never painted scenes...his work is much more about capturing the atmosphere of a place. And he seems to be continually drawn to ideas of remoteness and  isolation....sometimes verging on the spooky and haunting. In recent years he has broadened his subject matter....(we now see church interiors and flowers) as well as his use  use of materials.  In this collection combinations of ink, gouache, acrylic and watercolour, and a freer more intuitive use of colour add to the dramatic quality to  the paintings. A less literal almost abstract approach to composition produces paintings which are intensely imaginative and full of fantasy. Colin is moving in interesting directions.
