Artist Profile

Hometown: Youngstown, Ohio

Lives and Works: Brooklyn, New York

Colleen Ho’s drawings allude to patterns visible in nature. The imagery oscillates between topographical and biological forms, gestural and structured compositions. They are created by ripping paper with a thumbtack repeatedly, leaving a delicate, tactile relief to the surface. It is intuitive mark-making; both primal and meditative.

From a distance the work may appear as an ordinary sheet of neutral-toned paper. Upon closer investigation, forms emerge from individual marks; lines and shapes create movement within the frame.

Since the artist does not work from sketches, compositions are guided by an innate sense of order and balance. The repetitive gesture of carving into the surface is tedious, but over time the composition builds and creates a larger gesture that is graceful and seemingly spontaneous.

Colleen Ho is a visual artist based in Brooklyn, NY. She received a BA from the University of Notre Dame and a MFA from Pratt Institute of Art. She has recently participated in exhibitions at The Edward Hopper House, Nyack, NY; Schema Projects and Brooklyn Arts Council, Brooklyn, NY. Solo exhibitions have been presented at Gallery Kurt in Berlin, Germany and The Front in New Orleans, LA. Other notable exhibitions include Acadiana Center for the Arts, Lafayette, LA; Chongro Gallery, Seoul, Korea; and The Bronx Museum of the Arts where she was a participant in the Artist in the Marketplace Program. Her ripped paper drawings are in private and corporate collections in New York, Los Angeles, and London.
