Inspired by maps and the natural world that surrounds her, Claiborne Colombo uses intricate lines, guttural marks, bold colors and organic forms to translate the idea of place into deconstructed landscapes. Working on both canvas and paper, transparent layers of acrylic, graphite, charcoal and pastels are applied with both spontaneity and precision. Using this technique, each piece finds its own singular balance and striking contrast. Across all her work, Colombo blurs boundaries, creating in the space between painting and drawing.
Colombo is a mixed-media abstract artist based Portland, Oregon. She received her BFA in Visual Arts from Sewanee: The University of the South (2009) and MS in Creative Technology from VCU Brandcenter (2012).
