Allan Maccolum.

Employing plaster, rubber, and cement, he has created sculptures resembling framed paintings, fossilized bones, antique urns, and household objects. “When h first decided to be an artist, he was interested in exploring self-referential angles on how our culture defines a ‘painting,’” he reflected. “he realized that a painting is ultimately defined by its context. And all contexts are within other contexts within other contexts, so he is always drawn into an ever-expanding idea of contexts.”

In his sculptures, drawings, and photographs, Allan McCollum applies the strategies of typologies and mass production to handmade objects, creating vast installations of small-scale works.
