From the outset, Dan Colens paintings have continually investigated one foundational question: To what extent does art come from the artist, and to what extent does it arise from forces independent of the artist?
In his earliest works, Colen labored over precise oil renderings of banal interiorsa sloppy apartment bathroom, an adolescent bedroom, a camping tentinto which he introduced the presence of the supernaturalthe Blue Fairy, Jesus Christ, twinkling cherubs, his deceased grandfather. He describes his subsequent series of. Paintings as portraits of God.In these works, the space of the canvas embodies Geppettos worktablewhere Pinocchio transcends his materiality to become realand a message appears in the smoke left by a just-extinguished candle flame. In 2006 Colen started to make paintings with chewing gum instead of paint, ushering in a long period during which he traded representational subject matter for an exploration of the medium itself. Using flowers, dirt, grass, tar and feathers, Mylar confetti, street trash, and readymade metal studs, he relinquished his controlled approach to painting, allowing the final result to be guided by the behavior of a given material. He has mused on this loss of control as a source of excitement, commenting that it was as if the paintings were taking on inevitable formsalmost like destined forms. Colen was born in 1979 in New Jersey. He received a BFA in 2001 from the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence. Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo (2011). FLAG Art Foundation, New York (2012).

(2012), a contemporary film noir in which four college freshwomen are drawn into a murderous labyrinth of eventsmerge reality with fiction and handheld camerawork with precise montage. This heady mix of the unplanned, the seductive, and the outlandish crystallizes in his lesser-known, highly tactile paintings. Eschewing brush and professional paint in favor of squeegees, leftover household paint, and masking tape, he creates loosely sequential images that echo the sonic and visual leitmotifs of his films. The accumulative hypnotic effect of his paintings is offset by lifelike randomness and impulsive energy. (1995, written by Korine, directed by Larry Clark). (1997, written and directed by Korine).
