A resident of Fayetteville, Coston focuses on often on memories from his own life, often landscapes created through a unique blend of realism with impressionistic and abstract accents. His style is a blend of oil, watercolor and egg tempera techniques, incorporating pen-and-ink crosshatching techniques as well.
“Memory 20/20” focuses on memories from his childhood—hay bales, fields of cotton, rows of corn, classic cars. He has reinterpreted the flickers of the past through his definitive style.
Regarding his work, Coston said:
You have to make do with what you have. Human memory is not 20/20. Even a visceral, deeply emotional memory is not perfect. A photograph is not the actual event. Most of my memories are kinda fuzzy. A few are sharper but never good enough. So I keep looking for photos that remind me of my past. I make do with what I have.
