AUTOMAT is pleased to announce Deep South, an exhibition of painting and sculpture by New York artist Colin O’Con. Deep South brings together objects and images, which as the artist states “come out of the tradition of the sublime and lie at a cross section between nature and representation.”
COLIN O’CON presents viewers with the mystery of nature in paintings, sculptures, and immersive installations. Colin graduated Cum Laude with a BFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of North Texas in 2000. In 2004, he earned his MFA from Hunter College in New York and won the Tony Smith Sculpture Award. His work has been included in exhibitions at David Zwirner Gallery (New York), Fresh Window (Brooklyn), Rawson Gallery (New York), Lesley Heller Workspace (New York), The Alexandria Museum of Art (Louisiana), Boston Center for the Arts, Artspace (San Antonio), and CSAW (Houston). Alongside his visual art practice, he plays in the bands Dark Carpet and Big High Hills. Colin was born in Natchitoches, LA, and lives and works in Holmes, NY and Brooklyn.
