From the beginning of his career, Coombs has received acclaim for his multi-faceted practice, a kind of shotgun wedding of painting and sculpture. His layered compositions of aesthetic gestalt incorporated found objects and collaged elements into painterly formats that pulled the image into the physical space of the viewer. More recently Coombs has refined his working process, keeping the influence of bricolage in focus while maintaining variety of influence and invention. Coombs' small collages of found illustrations and photographs of nude figures in fantastic landscapes and dizzying interiors, provide the foundation for this body of new work. However, it is the representation of collage in his large-scale paintings that make this work truly innovative. The new paintings have a formality of composition and balance that underpins the energy of their execution
